Monthly Meeting – April 4, 2019

Stories at the Museum

Developmental editing is critical for polishing a work. Whether you’re writing a novel, memoir, non-fiction, short story, or flash, your story needs to make readers desperate to reach the last page.  This presentation analyzes how The Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum builds compelling stories, and lets you practice key story points to create or edit your own work.

Shelly Hafernik is a mom and computer nerd by day, a writer of fiction by night. Her fiction placed in a previous San Antonio Writers Guild’s contest; her play Storm Warning has been produced as reader’s theater; her nonfiction is published in Made in Texas: H-E-B’s 100th Anniversary Cookbook.

Shelly is an active member of SAWG, the Writers League of Texas, and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. A first-generation college graduate, Shelly holds a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and a masters from Georgia Tech. She participates in the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa.

Come early for coffee and to meet and chat with other writers before the program, which will begin at 7 PM.
