RESEARCHING YOUR NOVEL
Don’t Let Them Get You
Writers Forum member Jennifer Levens has written both historical and contemporary novels. At our March 11 meeting, she speaks about research as it applies to historical novels for accuracy, and to contemporary novels for dates and accuracy of methodology. Levens explains how to avoid the problem of readers who write to the author about the slightest inaccuracies in a novel, or even worse, readers who put the book down unfinished and move on to another author. She will explain how to avoid this by using meticulous research to identify reliable primary and secondary sources. Jennifer Levens is a Master of Education who also holds a degree in English Literature. She is an actress, director, musician, writer and teacher who has been writing most of her life, and thinks making people laugh is the highest form of therapy.
The meeting is this Saturday from 10:30am-12:30pm at All Saints Episcopal Church in the Memorial Hall. Doors open at 10:00am so that we can get started promptly at 10:30am. All Saints Episcopal Church is located at 2150 Benton Drive, Redding, CA.
See you there!
