2019: May Writers Roundtable

This one is a little different, but should prove interesting:

“Analogue Writing About a Digital World”

How do we portray a screen-based world in our fiction and nonfiction?

Moderator Greg Blake Miller is going to bring some essays (including a great one by Oliver Sacks)
to discuss and as always we invite attendees to share examples of artful portrayals of the modern wired age
(such as “Black Mirror” and the recent movie “Searching”).

Theme: Revolution and Change: Telling stories of transformation, from the personal to the global

November 7 marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution shook the world. 
In the spirit of those days and their dubious legacy, we'll be talking about stories of transformation, 
the moments big and small that alter our lives and communities.

This month’s topic: Saving Your Darlings

The old adage “kill your darlings” has been editing advice given to writers for decades.

This month we’re going to talk about getting to the heart of style

by looking at what we love about our own writing

and discussing saving, rather than deleting, what you love best about it.

 

(If you have a question or topic you would like to discuss,

send it to Greg Blake Miller at nevadawriters (at) gmail (dot) com.)

WSN Writers Roundtable

WSN’s Writers Roundtable is an Open Forum Discussion Group for working writers

to discuss craft, publishing trends, business issues, or simply get advice from other working writers.

 

This month’s topic: Home

Is “home” a house, a city, a country, a state of mind? What does it mean to long for home, to return home, to never leave it? How do we bring freshness and even strangeness to the most familiar of places?

We’ll also examine how time changes the meaning of “Home” for us and the characters we create.

Feel free to bring examples from your own work and that of your favorite authors. Join your fellow writers for this fun, casual event, hosted by UNLV narrative media professor Greg Blake Miller.
