Group Genre Panel
Keeping with the tradition of March CWC luncheons in years past, the March 16, 2013 luncheon will feature a special group genre program. A panel discussion will focus on the importance and the benefits of research in writing, developing and editing the material, and some tricks of the trade. The subject applies equally to fiction and nonfiction.
One wrong detail can put your work and credibility at risk. Learn how to apply the “C.R.A.P. Test” to research sources before writing. On the panel will be:
- Michael Troyan, Community Relations Manager for Barnes & Noble bookstores and author of MGM: Hollywood’s Greatest Backlot and A Rose for Mrs. Miniver: The Life of Greer Garson.
- Frances Kakugawa, author of 11 books, including Kapoho: Memoir of a Modern Pompeii, of her childhood in WWII Hawaii when her village was destroyed by lava from a volcano.
- Kimberly Edwards, a freelance writer who writes how-to, self-help, human interest, profile, first-person and destination articles and essays for many newsstand and trade magazines and newspapers.
- Steve Liddick, author of three novels, a memoir, a camping cookbook and many articles in national publications.
Each panelist has extensive experience in the business of “getting it right” in their work, whether it be an article, an historical piece, a non-fiction work or a novel.
Time permitting, there will be a question and answer session and members present at the luncheon will be invited to cite their own examples of the value of research.
Monthly luncheon is open to the public.
Cost is $12 for members, $14 for nonmembers.
The meeting fee includes buffet lunch and beverage.
