California Writers Club-Sacramento welcomes Phawnda Moore, an award-winning editor and full-service publication designer. Phawnda will present “The Power of Words,” the historical highlights of the writing profession at our May luncheon.
As always, members and guests are welcome.
Phawnda Moore will offer tips for self-publishers: how to prepare a manuscript for editing, write style sheets, strengthen a message, and, get the best results in words and images from editors and illustrators.
“Words define us,” she says. “We realize how important words are when we write: a book, our wedding vows, a eulogy. The 26 letters of our ancestry become the words of our legacy.”
Moore, also a professional calligrapher, will speak about the beginning of words and early scribes. Pictograms evolved into Roman letters; sacred manuscripts led to the development of type and the invention of the printing press. Then came the Internet.
Moore has edited and designed books for seven self-published California authors. She has been recognized twice by NSPRA, received a Clarion Award in 2011 for writing the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office Style Guide, and has had numerous creative articles published. Her work may be viewed at www.journalismdesign.net.
Monthly luncheon is open to the public.
Cost is $12 for members, $14 for nonmembers.
The meeting fee includes buffet lunch and beverage.
