Plot Tracking with Dee Carey

Does your plot sometimes go off somewhere unplanned? Are you caught wondering what happens next in your own book? Dee Cary will show how to plot an entire book on a single page. The group will participate in showing how you can see where the novel is going and how to switch plot points if necessary. This is not according to any accepted plan for either plotters or pansters, however it can be applied to either.

The Winners of the Lilac City Rochester Writers 2018 Stroy Contest are:


1st Place JOHN CALIGIURI for
“Waiting for the End of Tme”
2nd Place TERRY LEFEBER for
“Mothering Ruthie”

You will be able to enjoy these excellent stories and 19 more of the most outstanding contest entries in the LCRW anthology that will completed soon. Details and availability will be announced.

Gates Community Center at 1605 Buffalo Road in Gates. Entrance through the Police Annex. Our meetings are in the first room on the left.

Who we are:
Whether you’re just learning the writing craft, spending much of your time working on a literary project, or writing for a living, you’re a perfect fit for our group.

We are a not-for-profit writers’ group dedicated to providing networking opportunities, feedback, education, and motivational support to our members. With a few exceptions, we meet every fourth Saturday of the month. The business meetings start at 9:00 (members only) and the presentations begin around 10:15. The annual cost to members is $30, which defrays speaker fees and other expenses.

Our diverse membership includes published and not-yet-published authors of all genres. Every few months we gather for group critique sessions. We encourage people to check out a meeting and/or presentation for free before signing up to become a part of our network.
