August Meeting

We’re pleased to announce that Gerald Levin will be our speaker at our August chapter meeting. Just in time to get serious about returning to work and school, Gerald will offer a presentation on using humor in your writing on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 7:00PM at Ukazoo Books in Towson, MD. 

Gerald’s presentation will cover:

§  How writers from different eras have used humor.

§  What some prominent writers have said about writing humor.

§  10 techniques for writing humor.

§  Snippets of humorous pieces by notable writers.

§  Sources that can kick-start your humor writing.

Also, Gerald will offer suggestions on how to select a piece for our September chapter meeting for those who want to audition to represent the MWA at the Baltimore Book Festival.

Gerald H. Levin prefers to inject humor — often bits of quirkiness — into his short stories. He has an MFA in creative writing from the University of Baltimore. By day, he writes for the Maryland Office of Tourism.
