Please join us January 21st for
Kay Honeyman on Secrets
Everyone has secrets. It is part of what makes us human. And those secrets are powerful motivators. Our stories (real or imagined) often form out of those secrets. Secrets can be devastating or inspiring. They can show the best and worst in each of us. They reveal our frailties and our strengths. And they can drive a story or a scene.Through discussion and activities we will explore the role secrets play in stories, and dig for the secrets our characters try to hide. Writers will come away with some fresh tension for their stories and micro-tension for their scenes.
Kay's roots in Texas and football run deep. She grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and attended Baylor University, and her grandfather coached high school and college football. Her first novel, THE FIRE HORSE GIRL, came out in January 2013. It was published by Arthur A. Levine/Scholastic and appeared on three state award lists. Her next book INTERFERENCE came out in Fall 2016 just in time for election and football season. She currently teaches middle school and lives in Dallas, Texas.
Hope to see you there!
Come to the meeting prepared to have a good time!
Doors open at 10:00.
