Looking Ahead

Many thanks to LC SInC President Donna Kortes for her marvelous presentation on the Myers-Briggs personality system and how writers can use it as a character-building tool. We had tons of fun, and I learned how each of you would kill me if you decided to do so.

For those of you who missed the meeting, but who would like to learn more about Myers-Briggs and take some of the tests yourself, you can find those below:

Our next "official" meeting will be the second Saturday in September, the topic to be announced.But we'll be having fun activities during the summer of an "unofficial" nature, so stay tuned. And we hope to see you soon!

Your VP,

Our January 16th Meeting -- Research Q&A with Historian Jon Bryant

We are very excited to have noted scholar, historian, and writer Jonathan M. Bryant as our guest for our January meeting.

When: Saturday, January 16th at 5:00 PM

Where: Savannah's Coffee Roasters' Morrison Room

To RSVP, please visit our Facebook Event Page and tell us you're coming.Or write us at lowcountrysinc at gmail dot com.

Dr. Bryant is the author of Dark Places of the Earth: The Voyage of the Slave Ship Antelope, which is a dramatic narrative of slavery, corruption, and the law in the young American republic. Often described as the most important Supreme Court decision no one has ever heard of, the Antelope decision set the stage for the decades-later Amistad case.
We hope you'll join us as Dr. Bryant shares his techniques for finding sources on true crime, and using those stories as the basis for fictional accounts of crime. "Fiction that reflects reality," he says, "especially when it is historical, is the most convincing fiction to me."

You can learn more about Jonathan Bryant and the Antelope case at Bryant's website, where you can read reviews (they're phenomenal!) listen to interviews (including one with Diane Rehm!) and peruse the actual historical documents used to create this book.

We hope to see you there!
