July San Joaquin SinC Meeting

Next meeting, July 11, 10 a.m., Yosemite Falls Restaurant on Ashland. 

July will be a presentation by a SJSinC favorite duo:  Bonnie Hearn Hill and Christopher Allen Poe.  The topic will be "Fishing for Jaws:  How we hook you."  This will be a talk for readers and writers on the famous (or is that infamous?) hook - the first sentence or paragraph of a story that catches the interest of the reader.  There will be examples from classic and modern literature, fiction and nonfiction as well as tips on how to construct a good hook.  

ALERT:  There will be a contest, open to members only.  Bring your best hook - typed (single space okay) - with you to the meeting.  Bonnie and Chris will select a winner and award a prize.  For readers - you may bring one  (not longer than a paragraph) from your favorite author - SJSinC will have a second prize if there are enough entries from readers only.  Need clarification?  Please call Terell at 288-2018.  Need help with typing your entry?  Call Terell!

LATE BREAKING NEWS FLASH:  Bonnie has just offered to give a sample (depending on time) of their talk entitled "Conflict in Fiction: More than a fist in the face!" 

See you all there!
