The Writers' Lunch: The Same Only Different
moderated by Rick Homan

Friday, December 17, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This event will be conducted via Zoom. Register and you will be emailed the Zoom credentials.

The Writers' Lunch is virtually back! This month we discuss what "the same only different." Painters learn by copying masterpieces. Musicians are always ready to cite their influences. Should writers imitate successful authors? Or should they focus on developing a unique voice? Are you aware of the masters of your genre? Or is "will appeal to fans of . . ." only an advertising slogan?

Panelists include Jackie Davis Martin and Sallie Weissinger. Join us, share and learn.

The Writers' Lunch is a casual brown-bag lunch activity on the 3rd Friday of each month. Look forward to mini-reviews on books that have been added to our "literary craft" collection, informal presentations by member writers, and excellent conversation. Please contact Taryn Edwards if you have any questions or if you would like to be a panelist. [email protected]

 Rick Homan writers murder mysteries and suspense novels. His Nicole Tang Noonan mysteries are set on a college campus in rural Ohio and in San Francisco, Nicole's home town.
