Good morning writers!
Normally I wait until after the Writing Circle has met up to send out the newsletter but some of these announcements are time sensitive, so I thought “hey, the sooner the better!” Also, I’ve taken the liberty of also sending this out to the members of Sigma Tau Delta because some of the news is especially relevant to them in. If anyone from Sigma Tau Delta finds this newsletter useful and would like to continue to receive Writer’s Circle updates please shoot me an email and I’ll add you to the mailing list.
I cannot wait to see you all tonight and hear what you’ve written. Our sessions these last few weeks have been nothing short of amazing, both in terms of the work presented and the quality of the feedback.
Introducing the Monthly Write-In!
No fancy hyperlink for this announcement but it doesn’t need it! Henceforth, on the third Saturday of the month, the Evans complex shall belong to the writers! Or at least a room of it will. Every third Saturday writers will meet up at 10:00 for the express purpose of writing and we will wrap up around 1:00. Spread the word.
October 17, Evans 358, 10:00-1:00—Come to write!
Texas Poet Laureate comes to Sam Houston State University…TOMORROW!
Thursday morning (that’s tomorrow morning!) our very own Texas Poet Laureate, Dr. Carmen Tafolla will be visiting SHSU to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Please stop by Evans 212 at 9:00 for free food and better conversation. This is a great opportunity!
Sigma Tau Delta Writing Contest and Conference
Sigma Tau Delta’s Annual National Conference is just around the corner. This year we’re heading to Minneapolis! The trip is paid for by the our Chapter and the English Department, all you have to do to go is submit a short creative work or an essay. The doors just opened for submissions, so jump aboard before the train leaves the station!

Heighten Your Tension
Tension is what propels a reader forward in any story and it comes in many different forms. Ian Irving describes here 41 techniques writers can use to heighten suspense.
This week on Mythic Scribes, the conversation turns to descriptive techniques, their use, and their importance.
