Annapolis Chapter Meeting -The Importance of Names

November 14, 2018
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Room 205
801 Chase Street
Annapolis, MD 21401

Meeting changed to SECOND Wednesday for November.

We apologize that Mary Stojak has had to cancel for this month.  In her stead, debut author Andrew McDowell will discuss the importance of selecting (or creating) names for characters, as well as fictional settings and other elements of your stories. He’ll walk through key factors to consider, including genre, setting, and character profiling such as ethnic and religious backgrounds, as well as ways to make sure names are easy to pronounce and easily distinguishable from one another to avoid character confusion.
