The Challenge for October is:
In person: Arts and Letters Bookstore on the Square.
Virtual: via Zoom. Meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Monday the 28th.
About the presentation: One writer’s take on speculative fiction and why it’s the most awesome playground ever created. Join us for author William R. Humble’s introduction to the Speculative Fiction genre and sub-genres, as he tells us what we need to know both as writers and readers of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror.
Wanting to help others achieve their literary dreams, William joined the board of directors for W.O.R.D.—Writers Organizations ‘Round Dallas. There, with the help of other like-minded folks, he strives to help other writers find their teams, and to make the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex a nationally and internationally renowned center for the writing arts.
William is also one of the three founders of Writers in the Field. Bringing in experts from all over the country to share their expertise, this unique annual event features as many ‘hands-on’ experiences as possible.
Have you ever received feedback that your reader doesn’t “connect with” the characters in your writing? Alternately, have you ever read a novel or series and become so attached to the characters that you were depressed when it was over because you couldn’t share any more adventures with them? Learn why people get attached to fictional characters and techniques you can use to create the kind of characters people get attached to.
