DATE: October 20, 2018 Florida Chapter, Mystery Writers of America Luncheon Meeting
GUEST SPEAKER: Christopher Hawke
PROGRAM: “Psychology and the Art of Writing”
Improve your story crafting skills by applying the principles of psychology. Go line by line through real-world examples with Christopher Hawke, as we explore what makes great writing work from both the author’s and reader’s point of view. Members will be encouraged to add their input as Christopher dissects work and reveals the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the written word!
Speaker: Christopher Hawke’s debut novel, Unnatural Truth—a surreal psychological thriller focusing on the perception of reality, addiction, and mental illness—established Hawke’s unique talent for storytelling. His second novel, Altered Selves, is a 21st-century fable about what it means to have a soul and the power of true forgiveness.
Following his passion for teaching the craft of writing and utilizing his career in information technology and marketing, he is co-owner of Community Authors, a one-stop author services company. Christopher believes everyone has a story worth telling.
