Local author Tom Glenn will share his tips on the mechanics of fiction writing—formatting, copy editing, and developing crisp dialogue—when he presents “The Forgotten Discipline: Fiction Craftsmanship” at the September meeting of the MWA Montgomery County Chapter. Mr. Glenn’s presentation focuses on the craftsmanship required to get published, and he will answer any related questions from the audience.

About the Speaker:
Tom Glenn has been writing fiction all his life, drawing from a plethora of experiences. He has worked as an intelligence operative in Vietnam, a musician, and a cryptologist. With a doctorate in Public Administration, he toured the country training federal executives. Seventeen of his short stories and two novels are now published, including the novels Friendly Casualties and No-Accounts.

Join us Saturday, September 6, 2014, 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at The Episcopal Church of the Ascension, 205 South Summit Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877, in the white chapel. Just follow the signs. You can find directions to the church here.
