IAG General Meeting March 10/2016

The IAG general meeting begins at 6:30 PM at Chartwell RidgePointe, 1789 Primrose Court, Kamloops.

We have a wonderful list of leading information to go through, including the Schemenaur Awards that must have members only apply.  Our very intelligent presenter on this date is Elma Schemenauer whose presentation is on WRITING FLAWS: FIND ‘EM AND FIX ‘EM.

How can authors find and fix flaws in their handling of story settings?  How can they recofnize and repair string of beads plotting, and overactive plotting?  What can authors do about characters who suffer from Roget’s disease, fake dialogue, conuterfeit emotions, or Brenda Star dialogue?

Elma will take command of our writing vices and set us straight.

Guests are welcome to attend the meetings.  Come and meet the Interior Authors Group.
