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.

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.
