Author shares writing techniques

Submitted By Art Carey

Writers need to think and write in visual terms, the way it's done for television and film. That's the message Susanne Lakin, who writes as C.S. Lakin, will deliver to Fremont Area Writers on Saturday, April 28. She'll discuss how screenwriting techniques such as zooms, match cuts, and close-ups can replace outdated types of narration and description.

Lakin's novel "Someone to Blame" won the 2009 Zondervan First Novel competition. She specializes in contemporary psychological mysteries and allegorical fantasy.

The writers group meets on the fourth Saturday of the month from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. in Room 216 at DeVry University, 6600 Dumbarton Circle in Fremont. Meetings are open to the public.

Fremont Area Writers is a branch of the 1,500-member California Writers Club. To find out more, log on to or call Richard Scott at (510) 791-8639.
