Hampton Roads Writers - Where Characters Connect

A Note from Lauran

The economic impact of the pandemic on the nonprofit sector due to cancellations of in-person events has been crippling. In a recent survey conducted by the Nonprofit Finance Fund, 60 percent of the nonprofits interviewed indicated that they were experiencing conditions that risked their long-term sustainability, and 64 percent expected this trend to continue in the months ahead.

HRW is no exception.

Rest assured, this is not another plea for a donation. Instead, it’s a reminder of a simple and painless way that you can help HRW.

In 2021, HRW earned $327.43 commission income for items bought through the Amazon.com Associates referral link our web page? That is FREE money for HRW that didn’t cost the buyers a penny more than the price of whatever it was that they bought.

$327.43! That’s a complete conference scholarship!

If you plan to purchase anything from Amazon.com, you can help us greatly by using the referral link at the bottom of our homepage. Just click on the picture there and you will be taken to Amazon.com. Whatever you buy during that visit will earn HRW a referral fee of anywhere from 1 to 10% of the purchase price of each item. We won’t know who bought what, and we will have absolutely no access to any credit card information.

Creating and Sustaining the Fictional Dream: Using Solid Limited-Third Person Point of View to Help Readers Live in Your Fictional Dreamworld

Presented by John Robert Mack

In this ZOOM workshop, participants will learn how to create and maintain a vivid and continuous fictional dream. We’ll also discuss how to avoid bumping the reader out of the dream via authorial or narrative intrusion, clumsy writing, deviation in real-time linearity, telling rather than showing, improper internal monologue presentation, and many other things. We will do a few writing exercises that participants may share with the group or not.

Presenter Bio
John has been writing stories since the third grade and completed his first “novel” in the fourth grade. He studied writing and theater in college, where he published a short story in the UW-Milwaukee literary journal. He also wrote and produced his first full-length play Whatever Happened… to all the happy endings? under the tutelage of Fred Gaines at Lawrence University and wrote his first “real” novel, Rain-Dance, which was based on a semester he’d spent in London, under the tutelage of Shiela Cunningham.

Several of his plays were produced in Wisconsin, including Talking with Jacob, which garnered statewide recognition and the cover of several statewide periodicals. He also produced his own adaptation of the Ray Bradbury story, “The Better Part of Wisdom” with Mr. Bradbury’s approval and input.

He wrote a column for two years in The Dancer’s Guide as well as training manuals for several dance studios in Texas. His teaching ability earned him two articles in Quality in Action, a worldwide educational magazine. More recently, he wrote a column for Out in SA. Currently, he is a writer and photographer for SA Monthly Magazine and has written the cover article for numerous issues, as well as shooting the photos for one. He was also published in Woman.

From 2012 to 2015, he lived in Virginia Beach to focus on his writing. It was here that he met Lauran Strait, who has been his mentor for ten years. Much of what he will teach in this workshop was learned from her.

John has taught writing workshops for both the Hampton Roads Writers and the Muse. He also taught 6 workshops for the Hampton Roads Writers conference of 2016. He has written a total of 16 novels and self-published 9 of them so far. In 2020, he published a complete tarot deck.

Author Spotlight

Book photo Peter Stipe


Peter Stipe brings a collection of talents to writing. Nurtured in early days in elementary schools in Virginia, he spent his later educational and career years in Boston and the New England area. With a degree from Boston University and a Masters from Tufts, he became a high school teacher, then a teacher of another kind in Human Resources and Training for a varied list of businesses.

A competitive long-distance runner, Peter competed and placed in the top fifty in the Boston Marathon and participated in the 1972 US Olympic Trials.
Replacement knees have slowed him down a little, but he still travels. He has explored all fifty states and most of the Canadian Provinces. Native American sites are a favorite. His collection of Native art comes from authentic sources.

Peter’s first book of short stories, Finding Our Way, was published in 2015. The stories blend his interests and locales visited with engaging characters. His first full length novel followed. The Art of Love uses Providence, Rhode Island and its two well-known schools – Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University – to create the tensions and the power of the love story.

A search of his own family myths led to the writing of his third book, Remember Me. Lots of surprises there! His grandfather’s garden is the setting for a coming-of-age novel, The Fairy Garden. This adult fairy tale is set in Williamsburg, Virginia. His fifth novel, Bennett Falls, will be published this spring.

Peter and his wife live in Williamsburg where he is President of the Board for the Williamsburg Book Festival (celebrated on the first Saturday of October, if you are interested!). He markets his photographs and books at the Yorktown Farmers Market (beginning in April) with his publisher, Blue Fortune Publishing. His photographs are also available at On the Hill Gallery in Yorktown. Stop by and check out both venues!
