Featured Presentation: Making it Real

Speaker: Gerald DiPego

Gerald DiPego is a screenwriter and novelist. Hailing from Chicago and Northern Illinois University, he migrated to Los Angeles where he wrote thirty teleplays, and has credits on seven feature films such as Phenomenon and The Forgotten. He is also the author of five novels, and one nonfiction title: Write! - Find the Truth in your Fiction (a method for achieving emotional reality from an author with 50 years of experience in novels, plays and films.)

Gerald will talk about the why and how of emotional realism in your writing; are you telling your readers what is happening - or helping them live it? Join us on February 2nd for a great presentation and lively discussion!
