"Creating Suspense," Dunnville

The Dunnville Area Writers’ Group presents…
“Writing a Page-turner”

Thursday, August 20
7 – 9 p.m.
Dunnville Community Theatre,
101 Main St. E, 2nd floor, Dunnville (Map here.)

Ever stayed up all night reading a book? This seminar will show you how to build that kind of tension. And we'll help you put into practice the techniques professionals use - on every page and in every kind of story - to create drama and tension.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for 25 years. (More about the instructor here: here.)

Fee: free!

But please register in advance, email Brian Henry: brianhenry@sympatico.ca

About the Dunnville Area Writers

DAWG is a new writers’ group that offers writers a supportive environment to help one another work on independent projects. In addition to positive support and critique sessions, writers will learn to stretch their abilities from the valuable insights of guest speakers and focused workshops.

Hosting workshops and having guest speakers is one way that group organizer, Donna Blanke, hopes to help with the development of aspiring – and inspiring – area writers. "I'm committed to giving writing enthusiasts a hand with the confidence to take that first step to publication faster than I did.”

Membership to the writing group is free. DAWG currently has ten members, but Blanke says there's room for everyone interested. “More members means we can form subgroups for focused genre and styles." Only two meetings have been held so far, and already a playwriting and scriptwriting subgroup is set to begin this month.

Meetings, workshops and guest speakers are held at the Dunnville Community Theatre, located at the corners of Main and Cedar, on the second floor of the Optimist Hall. All writers are encouraged to attend: from novice to professional, including folks exploring the idea of perhaps beginning to write.
