MWAA Welcomes Austin Camacho in May

MWA Annapolis is thrilled to welcome the always-engaging Austin Camacho to our monthly meeting on Wednesday, May 18 at 6:30 pm. Austin plans to help us with some writing exercises, as he explains:

Every writer needs a little inspiration now and then, but how do we jumpstart our imaginations? I find writing exercises helpful for working those creative mental muscles. In this class, I’ll walk attendees through a few simple spontaneous writing exercises showing how you can create a story from random words, pictures, or situations to get the practice that sharpens both your wordcraft and your creativity.

Bring your writing instrument of choice and plan to have some fun!

Camacho is the author of six novels about Washington, D.C.-based private eye Hannibal Jones, five in the Stark and O’Brien international adventure-thriller series, and the detective novel Beyond Blue.
