Possible program ideas if anyone would like to present:

We would like to have more writers join our group and are looking for any outreach ideas.

  • Amy will be creating a poster that we can put up around the county.
  • Pat is creating business cards to hand out at writing events.
  • Kyle will look into getting an article in the Chronicle regarding Nanowrimo and our group’s participation.
  • Jennifer is going to explore how to make the website more useful to current and new members and would love any input provided.

If anyone has any ideas to bring in new members please let Pat know.

    I would like to join a live group of writers. Is there any way to meet a member or two first instead of jumping into a group setting to see if it is for me? I like to write and read fantasy and science fiction., I joined Fanstory on line, and have written a few poems, and short commentaries. With my sister’s prompting, I have recently self-published an ebook. It would be great to have some one local to share ideas with.
