Whether you’re writing flash fiction or a 90,000-word novel, the essential element is The Scene. At our January 28th meeting Camille Minichino will offer tips for writing a compelling scene, then show how to build upon that to create a full manuscript.

Although her own main focus has been on mystery novels, the techniques she’ll demonstrate are applicable to all forms of writing and no one would know that better than Minichino (aka Margaret Grace,  Ada Madison, and Jean Flowers).    

A retired physicist, she followed up her first book (on nuclear waste management), with the creation of twenty five cozy mystery novels that have been published, in 4 different series.

She’s also written many short stories and articles on the craft of writing.  

She teaches and writing workshops around the Bay Area, as well as science at Golden Gate University in SF.

The meeting is free and open to the public, so feel free to invite your friends, from 2-4 PM, at DeVry University, 6600 Dumbarton Circle, in Fremont.
