Our August 19 speaker is JoAnn Robisheaux w/a Claire Sanders, presenting…

How I Learned to Show, Not Tell

Writers often struggle with the rule, “show, don’t tell”. In this
presentation, Claire will show an author who has broken the rule and how to revise poor writing using the following strategies:  Include details that make the reader “see” the location.; Engage the reader by showing the character’ s emotions; Don’t settle for “telling” facts, “show” to give the reader a deeper understanding.
