The WCSC is thrilled to announce that author and workshop presenter, Ruth Walker  will be featured at our December 15 meeting.

As a special Christmas bonus, members and guests will have the opportunity to participate in two one-hour workshops on developing character:

At 11:30 Ruth guides participants as they follow her recipe for creating great character – a fun and practical approach for creating character from scratch.

At 1:15 participants cook up a story for their new character.

Come early to order lunch, which will be served after the first workshop, and enjoy this  opportunity to learn craft from a remarkably gifted teacher .
