November 2019 Meeting

Maine Romance Writers is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting romance and other fiction writers via networking and programming. Through monthly meetings and workshops, we strive to provide continuing assistance in the journey to publication, whether by a traditional path, a small press, or independent publishing.

Our next meeting is on Nov 16, 2019.

Peggy Jaeger presents:

A Rose By Any Other Name...

In this workshop, writers will be educated about why character names are so important. The workshop includes instruction in why: • Character names are a first means of branding your stories • The wrong names can torpedo your story and cost you readers • The right names make a connection between the reader and the character • How to choose the correct names for the story you want to tell, the genre, era, culture • Resources for naming characters. Using examples from beloved novels, pop culture, and history, this workshop will allow the author to distinguish between a good character name and a great, memorable one.
