National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981/AFL-CIO) Tucson Unit-a reading and open mic on Monday, May 15, 2017
The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, May 15, starting at 6:00 p.m. at 877 S. Alvernon Way. This month Jeanne Burrows-Johnson will be the featured reader. Jeanne will share some thoughts on the theme of “The Author Recycles: New Creations from Old Work.”  Drawing from her background in business, education, and the performing arts, Jeanne will examine how elements of a writer’s fiction and non-fiction can be reshaped into new material for publication via print, Internet, and broadcast venues.  She is the author of Prospect For Murder, the first title in a mystery series featuring the rich environs and multi-cultural history of Hawai`i. Jeanne is a graduate of the University of Hawaiʻi and a member of:  Phi Beta Kapa, Phi Alpha Theta, The National Writers Union, Sisters in Crime, and Arizona Mystery Writers.

This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!

The event will be held in our temporary location, the AFSCME/SEIU Union Hall at 877 S. Alvernon Way in Tucson. The building is on the east side of the street (opposite the Randolph Park golf range) and is a couple of blocks north of 22nd Street. There is ample parking. The room is on the first floor and we will have signs up to point the way.

I’m Not The Author, I Only Wrote The Book

How Ghostwriting Improves Your Writing Skills and Your Financial Picture

“Ghostwriting is a rewarding experience in itself,” says Dan Baldwin, but he adds, “The effort I put into ghostwriting projects has enhanced my ability to write fiction.”  Short story writers and novelists often have to get into the heads of their characters.  Imagine what you can learn getting into the heads of a real person.  Ghostwriting requires mastery of the same techniques as fiction – plotting, characterization, dialog and so on.  But the constrants of working within an established and real-world story line require intense concentration.  And that’s where the learning (and fun) comes in.

He says, “Ghostwriting can be lucative, too.  My ghostwriting pays for my novel writing so I’ve been able to give up my paper route and the job as a Mall-Mart greeter.  This has the added benefit of keeping me off the streets, so society as a whole benefits from my ghostwriting projects.”

Dan’s program covers the basics of ghostwriting from the perspective of the client and the writer.  He says it is more than a how to lecture; it’s also how to sell it to a client and profit from your efforts presentation.  Topics covered will include a segment on contract essentials.  “The program is based on philosophy of ‘Do as I say not as I have done,’ so it reflects real-world experiences.  I’ll tell you my mistakes so you don’t have to make them and I’ll show you sucessful techniques so you can use them to beef up  your writing and your bank account.”

Dan has ghostwritten or co-authored more than 50 books, including for the ” …for the Dummies”  group, Streetwise Guides, major publishers and self-published authors.  He is also the author of nine novels, a short story collection, and three non-fiction books on psychic detecting.  Contact Dan at baldco@msn.com and visit his website http://www.fourknightspress.com or http://www.danbaldwin.biz
