At the Writers of Kern January meeting, the speaker will be long-time peace activist, Dr. Frank Romano, author of "Love and Terror in the Middle East and Storm Over Morocco. 

Dr. Romano, a writer of creative nonfiction, will discuss using literary elements such as metaphor, description, and showing, (rather than telling) to enhance nonfiction material. He will also cover how to prepare a manuscript for submission and how to find a publisher.

Dr. Romano has traveled back and forth from Paris to the Holy Land 3-4 times yearly since 2005. During that time, he’s organized conferences, author events, peace demonstrations and other activities. Along with hearing his writing tips, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about Romano’s peace activities in the Holy Land.
