Speaker: Tim Chizmar, Writer & Humorist Topic: How to Get Out of Your Own Damn Way
Since graduating from Edinboro University with his BA in Communications, Tim has written for various magazines and sold many short stories and screenplays. As a member of the prestigious Horror Writers Association he signed a celebrated three book deal in 2014. Horror Legend Clive Barker has said of Tim's writings- "Reaches past the conventions of the commonplace." Aside from the dark topics his credits to date include ABC, FOX, Showtime, Playboy, NBC, CMT, The Hallmark Channel, and many more. As a headlining comedian he has worked with Jeff Foxworthy, Jon Lovitz, Daniel Tosh, Dana Carvey, and Kevin Smith.
When he’s not inspiring fellow writers by being on various Comic-Con panels or a speaker at Hollywood Success events, he's constantly working on his next project. Because... there's always a next project! Tim has been a successful film director, comedian, and producer but left the glitz and glam of Hollywood, CA behind in early 2017 for the mountains and peacefulness of Idaho as he completes his first memoir which is an elaboration on his short story "California Dreaming" recently published in Chicken Soul for the Soul: Random Acts of Kindness. He's looking forward to having a frank, honest, and hopefully engaging discussion on the business of the writing craft.
The fee (which includes lunch) is $20 for members of the Idaho Writers Guild and $25 for non-members. The Idaho Writers Guild, writers working for writers, meets the third Tuesday of every month (excluding November and December). The Literary Lunches are open to the public.
