Guests are always welcome! :) You are free to attend two meetings (unless they say "Members Only") before we ask you to join.

We meet at Angelo’s (address below) in the banquet room (ask for Eastside RWA). If you would like to join us for dinner, please email dana@danadelamar.com by Monday, 2/12. For more information about dinner, see "Dinner Details" below.

Pam Binder - Atmosphere:  Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s
Tuesday, February 13, 2018, 7pm <<--dinner starts at 5pm
Angelo's Restaurant, 1830 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005, 425.883.2777 


Stephen King tells us that atmosphere or setting is what makes the reader a sensory participant in the story.  Description begins with visualization of what it is you want the reader to experience.  It ends with your translating what you see in your mind into words on the page.  Setting is where your story takes place.  Description is how you bring it and the characters who populate it, to life.  Learn how to translate the story you’ve visualized into a living, breathing world on your page.


Binder and her husband of 33 years are the parents of three grown children. When not writing, she enjoys snow skiing, reading and hiking. Currently, she is working on her fourth novel, NOW AND FOREVER, a romantic time travel set in medieval Ireland.

  • Do not feel obligated to buy dinner at the restaurant. However, since the restaurant is giving us the space for free, it would be nice of us to have dinner there when feasible (no pressure though; we know some folks don't have the time or have budgets to stick to).
  • The restaurant can accommodate gluten-free or other special dietary requests; just ask the server. 
  • If you can't make it at 5:00 for dinner, you can still order dinner if you get there later; just please be there to place your order by 6:40ish so that we don't interrupt our speaker.

We'd love to see you there! :)
