Are you a writer living in the Rockford, IL or surrounding area? Do you want to know more about writing science fiction? Where do science fiction authors get their ideas, anyway? How do they take the kernel of an idea and turn it into a novel?

If you want to find out a little more about these and other burning questions, please join us at the regular In Print meeting being held Saturday, July 12 at 1:00 p.m. at the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center, 406 North Main in downtown Rockford. In addition to hearing all the new and exciting news about the In Print writing group--including information on our upcoming Book Fair in October--you will hear from two amazing authors, who will have a presentation on their craft:
