We are pleased to announce our speaker Lorin Oberweger for April's General Meeting.
April’s meeting is a workshop called DEEP SCENE: Going Beyond the Basics to Create Shapely, Resonant Scenes hosted by Lorin Oberweger.

story construction, the scene, and examine ways in which every aspect of the scene can perform multiple functions, creating richer and more dynamic moments that lead to a much more satisfying work.
Lorin Oberweger is a highly sought-after independent book editor and well published author. In addition to manuscript editing services, Lorin's company, Free Expressions, offers writing seminars nationwide, as well as the acclaimed Novel Crafting Retreats—intensive story development weekends for writers in all genres of fiction.
In addition, she serves as Editor-in-Residence/Class Instructor for the renowned Writers Retreat Workshop.
Lorin’s students and clients have millions of books in print and have been published by imprints of Harper-Collins, Random House, Penguin, Scholastic, and other mainstream and independent presses.
Please bring along a scene from your novel—no more than five pages.
As always, guests are welcome.
All General Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month - except in December and on major holidays.
The meetings run from 7:00 - 9:00 pm in the back right corner inside the store. Arrive early or stay late to visit with fellow literary friends and our speakers.
