Series for serious writers
Breakthrough Foundation presents a series of lectures designed to help
writers acquire professional skills. Top professionals from Houston media
will speak on their special areas of expertise.
July 22 Wendy Haskell Meyer, associate editor, Houston Home and
Gardens, will give marketing tips to freelancers; and discuss the
transition from amateur to professional.
July 29 Susan Wright, journalism instructor, University of Houston,
will talk about consumer affairs, libel questions, and sources
for quotes and background information.
Aug. 5 Charlotte Moser, art critic, Houston Chronicle, will talk about
writing criticism and editorials.
Aug. 12 Thelma Schoettker, program director, KEYH, will help you learn
the difficult art of interviewing.
Aug. 19 Jim Asker, reporter, Houston Post, will talk about the process of
getting the words on paper; and how to know when your story is
ready for submission. Writing assignments will be critiqued.
Aug. 26 Neal Barrett, Jr., communications consultant, will share what
writers should expect from editors—and vice versa—plus how you
can begin to develop editing skills.
We will meet at the Breakthrough office, 1708 Rosewood at Almeda,
