Writers of the Mendocino Coast: Jody Gehrman

February 21, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Writers of the Mendocino Coast meet every third Sunday at 3 pm via Zoom. Visit for more information and to register for the meeting.

The February meeting will feature ​”Keep Me in Suspense: Adding more tension to your work, regardless of genre,” a talk by Jody Gehrman.

Whether you’re writing fiction, memoir, drama, or poetry, we could all use more suspense in our work. How do we craft scenes and images that maximize the reader’s involvement in the moment? How can we get our characters into emotionally dangerous situations, then ratchet up that tension even more?

Playwright, novelist, and professor Jody Gehrman will discuss techniques to help you maximize the drama and keep the pages turning regardless of your genre or style. This talk will be formatted as an interview, followed by a question and answer period with the audience.

Sponsored by Writers of the Mendocino Coast, branch of the California Writers Club,
