QUOTE OF THE NIGHT:
WRITING TIP from Jo Wilkins:
UPCOMING MEETINGS: We have some speakers scheduled during our upcoming meetings.
Next week, June 10th, Judge Diane Steel will be speaking at our Monday meeting at the Lutheran Church. She will present information relavent to writing about legal matters, and then be open for questions and discussion. If you have any legal scenes in your book, this would be a great opportunity to get some expert opinion on them!
On June 17th Videographer Jonathan Morgan Jenkins will be speaking at the Monday meeting. Here is a picture and bio to give you an idea of his expertise:
Jonathan Morgan Jenkins began his passion for filmmaking after creating, shooting and editing projects produced in his Cinema class in High School.
He continued to shoot consumer and semi-professional for many years until he eventually opened his Video Production business in 2006. The timing was right as Google had just purchased YouTube and he immediately began posting video content to market clients.
Currently Performance Production Services focuses on producing professional video content for Online Video Production, Family Events, Corporate Events, Seminars, Training Videos, Non-Profits and Documentaries.
Jonathan is also a published author in the filed of Vocal Training and has also written 6 screenplays.
“I look forward to helping authors in Las Vegas understand how powerful Video Marketing is, and how it will help them promote their writings.”
