Speakers Sell More Books!

A warm welcome back to Michele Chynoweth, our special guest presenter for June's meeting

 

An award-winning Toastmaster as well as an award-winning author, Michele Chynoweth learned early on that speakers sell more books. She took lessons from pros like Jack Canfield (author of Chicken Soup for the Soul) and began presenting workshops and landing speaking gigs at churches, Rotary Clubs, Chambers of Commerce, women's groups, and more. She'll teach you the basics about overcoming your fears, vocal variety, writing a good speech, engaging your audience, even incorporating humor so that you'll have them hanging onto every word and then lining up to buy your books!

 

If time permits, we will critique manuscripts. Please bring 20 copies of a maximum of three (3) double-spaced pages with one-inch margins and 12-pt. font. Also, please use the Line Numbering feature in Microsoft Word for your manuscript (go to Layout and click Line Numbering). 

 

Refreshments: Elizabeth Boerner and Judi Folmsbee

We're a friendly group, don't be shy. If you're interested in becoming a member of DCWF, there are no application forms to fill out or dues to pay. Just show up at one of our meetings where we'll capture your name and contact information. We have a lot of resources and encouragement to offer, and new members always bring a lot to the group.

 

Established in 1993, DCWF meets the third Saturday of the month at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, Tunnell Hall, 203 North Bedford Street, Georgetown, DE 19947, from 9 AM to Noon. Meeting attendance runs from eight to 28. Many are beginning writers who are mentored by those who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with resources to build up the Christian who writes. We follow a meeting agenda, but there is no membership fee or pressure; however, we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing. Meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, manuscript critiques, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats and encourage participation in regional/national conferences. Follow us on Facebook.
