Monthly Meeting – June 19

We hope you can attend the next MWA Charles County Chapter meeting on Wednesday, June 19 from 7-8:30pm in room BI124 on CSM’s La Plata campus.

This month’s meeting includes a brief overview of library resources by Charles County library Director Emily Ferren.  Then, a majority of our meeting time will include a hands-on writing exercise and discussion about using dialog to help develop characters and to move your story along.

Group member and CSM Professor Richard Siciliano will lead our hands-on session. He asks that prior to the meeting, you read this short story by Ernest Hemingway and watch this related film clip >>

We have reserved the computer lab down the hall for those who prefer to write on computers (bring a flash drive if you want to save your work).  You may also bring your own laptop, or write on good old paper!  Or, you may choose to simply watch, listen and absorb–it’s always your choice!
