What's New at HIS Writers ACFW North Denver Chapter:
- THERE WILL BE NO REGULAR MEETING IN DECEMBER
- Next regular meeting: Monday, January 12th
- Speaker: Brandy Vallance, Author and winner of Christian Writers Guild 2013 "Operation First Novel"
- Topic: Personification and Metaphors
Do you hear that your writing isn’t strong enough? Maybe you haven’t accessed your story’s emotional depth. Beyond strong dialogue and powerful body language, sharper tools await the intrepid fiction writer. Learn how to pull out all the stops and make inanimate (and sometimes animate) objects reflect your characters internal conflicts, desires, and fears. Make the reader feel deeply without them knowing why. Also, learn how to bring metaphor into your setting to drive your story deeper. Come prepared to cut through surface techniques and sculpt the heart of raw emotion.
- CONGRATULATIONS to Kathy Brasby, winner of our 4th annual Flash Fiction Writing Contest, for her story, "Learning to Dance." Also, congratulations to Nedra Russell, people's choice winner, for her story, "Blood on a Rose." And to finalists Robin Fuson, Donna Scofield, Lisa Hernbloom, Derrick Howard, Connie Peters, Laura Padgett, and Marla Benroth.
- CONGRATULATIONS to Kathy Kovach, winner of our Bring a Guest drawing.
