August Meeting

Erin Taylor Young
OKC Christian Fiction Writers will host author Erin Taylor Young on Saturday, August 16th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Ms. Young will speak on Writing Fresh. We want our readers to not only love our story, but to love every word along the way. In this workshop, learn to add humor, vivid descriptions, dialogue that doesn’t dead end, symbolism, and metaphors to engage your readers word by word.

Erin Young’s debut book, Surviving Henry, published by Revell Publishing, was released August 5, 2014. Ms. Young is an award-winning humor writer living in a comedy with an all-star cast including one well-meaning husband, two polar opposite sons, and a non-compliant dog. When she isn't writing or rescuing the dog from mortal danger, she works in a library where she gets to wander among books. She has a bachelor’s degree in art and a master’s degree in music, which is mostly inconsequential but makes her sound more reputable. She loves football (Da Bears), photography, and hiking in cool national parks. Learn more about Erin at www.erintayloryoung.com where she blogs about writing, God, and her aversion to spiders.

OCFW meets the third Saturday of the month at 1:00 at Mardel Christian Store, 3300 South Boulevard in Edmond. For more information, visit www.okcchristianfictionwriters.com or email Susan Crawford at OCFWchapter@gmail.com.
