The Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (GLVWG) will hold its April meeting at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 27, at the Palmer branch of the Easton Area Public Library, 1 Weller Place, Palmer Township.

At 11 a.m., "De Re (All About) Contracts," attorney Kattina Barski will discuss the ins and outs of contracts for both traditionally and independently published authors. She will discuss the difference between these contracts and what writers should know before signing on the dotted line.

The 1:30 p.m. workshop will be presented by Jerry Waxler. In "Translate Your Life Into Story," Waxler will teach attendees step-by-step techniques to organize and shape tangled, vague, and disconnected memories into a coherent, compelling language of stories that can be edited, polished, and shared.

Waxler teaches writing at Northampton Community College and is the author of "Learn to Write Your Memoirs in Four Weeks: A Step-by-Step Guide" and a blog, www.memorywritersnetwork.com/blog [1].

The morning program is free and open to the public. The afternoon workshop is free for members, but there is a charge for nonmembers. Registration is required for the afternoon workshop. For more information and to register visit http://glvwg.org/workshops.htm#April [2].
