Special thanks to Joanne Stankiviech for her presentation at the July meeting of "Evolution of the Writing Process"  A few of the topics discussed were: What's your PURPOSE in writing?, How would you define your book GENRE?, Who is your NICHE AUDIENCE? What is the appropriate MARKETING STRATEGY for your niche?  All questions we need to ask ourselves as we start the writing process.  

For the AUGUST 2017 meeting, we will be learning how to write log lines - for anything, fiction, non-fiction, magazine articles, periodicals. Why do you need a log-line? Come to the August meeting to find out.
