603 N. Lamar - Austin, TX 78703


The speaker for our monthly meeting is author Tara Dairman discussing strategies to bring more joy to your creative process.

Which part of your writing process causes you the most anxiety? Do you wish you could learn to draft faster–or make the revision process less painful? Using examples from her four published MG novels (and some failed projects), Tara will help you learn how to break patterns that aren’t working for you, adapt your process to the demands of each project, and access joy while creating.

Tara Dairman is the author of THE GREAT HIBERNATION (Wendy Lamb/Random House, 2017) and the ALL FOUR STARS three-book foodie series (Penguin Random House).

This meeting will be immediately followed by the Austin SCBWI Writers & Illustrators Open Critique for SCBWI members on the 3rd floor of BookPeople.
