The Chesapeake Chapter holds a monthly luncheon meeting with a speaker usually on the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a holiday, venue scheduling, or convention conflict. Occasionally, the chapter offers a field trip or special event instead of a luncheon. Upcoming meeting dates are listed below. You will receive an email notice in advance of the meeting, along with a registration form and menu choice (if applicable). To reserve your place at a meeting, follow the directions as stated on the email notice or on the meeting’s announcement on this website. Guests and non-members are welcome to attend.

Do you dream of writing the next big blockbuster? How about discovering what it takes to write a successful TV or movie script? Then you’ll want to attend Chessie Chapter’s next meeting A Screenwriter on Screenwriting with scriptwriter, novelist, and fellow chapter member, Adam Meyer. He’ll explain how he broke into the biz, talk about screenwriting techniques and how they apply to fiction, and answer our questions on how, we too, can see our work on TV or in the movies!
Adam is a screenwriter, TV writer and novelist who’s written shows for Fox, CBS, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Channel, as well as several TV movies for Lifetime. He’s also the author of the novel The Last Domino and has published many short stories, including one in the Sisters in Crime/Chesapeake chapter anthology Storm Warning. His latest movie, My Daughter’s Ransom, is currently in development for Lifetime.
LUNCH: No food is provided, so please feel free to bring your own lunch!
RSVP: The meeting is FREE and open to the public, but we would appreciate a heads up if you’re planning to attend. This allows us to have plenty of chairs set up in advance.
Please RSVP to our secretary, Becky Hutchison: bookgaia [at] comcast [dot] net and let us know how many will be in your party.
**If for any reason we have to cancel, we’ll try to notify everyone who signs up, so when you RSVP, please make sure Becky has your current email and phone number.** Also check on the Chessie Chapter’s website -www.chessiechapter.org – before you leave home.
