Tools for Self-Editing - You Won't Want to Miss our April Meeting!

Join us Saturday, April 12, 2014 when author, mentor, and speaker Frank Ball gives us "Tools for Self-Editing" - Getting the words right isn’t easy, but it isn’t rocket science either. 

With these important tips, you can write like a pro. Some of the areas that will be covered are:
  • Starting Strong
  • Meaningless Filler Words
  • The Point of Punctuation
  • Recognizing Redundancies
  • Using Better Grammar without Losing Your Voice
  • Saying What You Mean
  • The Malice of Modifiers
 Frank Ball founded North Texas Christian Writers to help members improve their writing skills. He is a panelist on The Writers’ View. Author of seven books, he has worked as a ghostwriter, writer’s coach, e-zine columnist, and copy editor. As Pastor of Biblical Research and Writing for three years, he wrote sermons, teaching materials, and hundreds of devotionals. His book Eyewitness: The Life of Christ Told in One Story is a compilation of biblical information on the life of Christ in a chronological story that reads like a novel. He founded HelpMeTellMyStory.com and speaks at churches and writing conferences to promote God’s story in people’s lives.

The ACFW-DFW Chapter meets at Bedford Public Library from 10::30 a.m. to noon. Guests are always welcome. Please plan to stay and go out to lunch with the rest of the "Ready Wrtiers".
