Welcome to SLO NightWriters


General Meeting Program March 14th 2017

Round Tables Critique Sessions began at 5:15 pm

Terry Sanville and Mark Arnold will be here to critique your work

Please keep your submission to two pages, typed, 12-point font, double spaced. This is a great—and safe—way to see what the critiquing process is all about, get valuable feedback from two fantastic writers, and practice reading your work to a small audience

Susan Tuttle's Instruction Round Table for March will focus on:
 Creating Memorable Characters

We’ll explore what it takes to craft characters that are believable and intriguing, characters readers will bond with and fall in love with and need to know more about, even characters who are vastly different from ourselves. Learn strategies to understand your characters even better than you understand yourself, the value of character biographies, and how to make sure your characters never act “out of character.” Come at 5:15 to the Instruction Table to discover how to make your characters truly come alive.

Please note that there will be a charge of $5:00 for all non members who attend a critic group or round table. Payment will be accepted at the entrance to the meeting.

Our Speaker this eveining will be:

Teresa Rhyne.

"From Tragedy to Target And The Top of the Bestseller's List."  

I'll share the journey of how my dog and I both surviving cancer turned into a blog, which turned into a memoir, which became a #1 New York Times bestseller.

I will include in the discussion my writing process,  how I found my agent, what the submission process was like for a first time author, and the extensive marketing efforts made by me and my publisher. Highlights were my first signing at Book Expo, Barnes & Noble choosing the book for a special display, Target's decision to carry the book, my appearance on CNN, and the day the book hit #1-- eight month's after it's initial publication. 

Not a usual author experience!
