Lancaster Christian Writers October Meeting Features Speaker and Author Emily Chase

Mark your calendar for Lancaster Christian Writers next meeting with author and speaker Emily Chase on Saturday, October 20, 2012, at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543 from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9).  We will be meeting back in our normal classroom area (A-101/103) inside the main church sanctuary entrance. Author, counselor and youth conference speaker Emily Chase will be sharing a workshop of high-octane value to fiction and non-fiction writers alike. 

Workshop Description--"Say It With Feeling": How do you develop characters with real emotions? Anger and joy and grief are all abstract nouns, but they each manifest concrete physical components and actions. Learn to take your own emotional pulse and use the results to enhance your writing whether in fiction or non-fiction.  Techniques will include taking a trip to the land of Zoom and creating an anger thermometer.  Come prepared to laugh and cry!

Emily Parke Chase has written seven books on relationship issues,  including Why Say No When My Hormones Say Go? (Wingspread) and Help! My Family's Messed Up! (Kregel).  This workshop draws upon her 20+ years of experience in the counseling room working with clients in crisis.  Emily and her husband live in Mechanicsburg, PA.  More info and contact link at her website:

We will also be answering questions regarding e-publishing arising from last month's clinic and hosting our regular critique groups as well. If you are new, check out critique guidelines under Lancaster Christian Writers Info at top of right column.
