WSN’s Writers Roundtable is a monthly forum for members, prospective members and guests to gather, discuss, and/or diverge from a general topic of discussion in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
WHEN: The WSN Writers Roundtable usually meets the first Tuesday of every month.
WHERE: 6:30-7:30PM at The Coffee Press inside the Paseo Verde branch of the Henderson Public Library across from The District.
Tuesday May 2, 2017, 6:30PM
This month’s topic: “Let’s Talk: Deploying Dialogue in Your Stories.”
UNLV writing professor Greg Blake Miller will kick off the discussion and present examples of how dialogue can not only help define your characters, but also propel your story forward.
Bring dialogue from your favorite authors or from your own work to add to the discussion.
We look forward to seeing you for good company, good conversation and good coffee!
Free for members and first-time visitors,
$5 for non-members.
The WSN Writers Roundtables launched after one of our board meetings and a discussion about the ethics of celebrity journalism, specifically the Rolling Stone Sean Penn/El Chapo article. It evolved into a lively discussion about the trend towards celebrity journalism in general … and thus the Roundtable was formed.
WSN’s first Writers Roundtable, Tuesday March 1, 2016 at The Coffee Press
Our official inaugral roundtable happened on Tuesday March 1, 2016 and was led by UNLV professor and new WSN Board Member Greg Blake Miller. It evolved into a spirited discussion about using personal travel experiences and emotional memory in our writing. We closed the joint and the conversation spilled into the parking lot. The same thing has happened every time so far. So if you want to talk about writing with other writers, stop by and visit us next time!
