Let's have a little fun for our flash fiction contest. The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, sponsored each year by the English Department at San Jose State University, "challenges entrants to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels," and so will we. The winner will receive a gift card from a local independent bookseller, and refreshments will be provided.
Before the meeting, Mike Shaw will hold a forum in the auditorium at 12:30 to help you learn more about opportunities in corporate writing career, and how you can turn your writing skills into a financially rewarding career. The meeting is free to all members.
Soniah Kamal will be our first speaker, and she will tell about her challenges in adapting Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" to a different culture.
Our second speaker, Sally Kilpatrick, will show the conflict-averse writer how to introduce conflict into their storytelling.
