Hope to see you there.
Our February 21 meeting will begin at 6:00 PM, in the Ewbank Meeting Room of the downtown Lawrenceburg Public Library, 150 Mary Avenue, Lawrenceburg, IN. Hope to see you there.
Beginning January 3, 2013, WordWrites Guild has a new home, two new homes actually.
On January 3rd, and subsequent 1st Thursdays, we will be meeting in Dunevant #1 at the North Dearborn Branch Library.
Beginning January 17, and subsequent 3rd Thursdays, we will be meeting in the Ewbank #2 at the main Lawrenceburg Public library.
At both locations, we will officially begin a 6:00 PM since the libraries close earlier (8:00) than Ivy Tech. If 6:00 is too early for you, come when you can. We’ll stay until we run out of things to do or talk about, or until they throw us out.
We at the WordWrites Guild warmly thank Northern Kentucky novelist Rick Robinson for presenting a thoroughly enjoyable program on August 15. Everyone in attendance learned about pacing one’s story, the many publishing options available today, the importance of building plot in such a way as to challenge fictional characters while staying true to their own morals and personalities, and so much more.
The WordWrites Guild is indebted to the Lawrenceburg Public Library for working with us in hosting this award-winning author. We look forward to future collaborations with this professional and enthusiastic organization.
As always, we welcome all writers to join us as we resume our normal meeting schedule on September 6th. We will meet at 6:30pm in room 238 at Ivy Tech, Lakefront Campus, Lawrenceburg, Indiana. There are no fees and we invite fellow word-geeks to attend meetings as their schedules allow.
If you have a work that you would like critiqued at the September 6 meeting, attach it (RTF prefered) to an email to WordWritesGuild@gmail.com by midnight August 30. See the Guidelines tab for more information.
Drum roll, please . . .
Beginning with our April 5 meeting, WordWrites Guild will be meeting at a new location.
Join us 6:30 PM on first and third Thursdays inRoom 238 Ivy Tech Lakeside 500 Industrial Drive Lawrenceburg, IN
As we approach our six month anniversary, it is time to look forward to 2012. Next year, we are planning to move from our once per month schedule on the third Thursday of each month to first and third Thursdays. This will offer opportunities to critique more work from our authors, and to explore more discussion topics.
We will continue the once a month schedule through December (12/15/2011), and begin the new schedule on January 5, 2012 with a submission deadline of 12/30.
This change of schedule gives us an opportuinty to also discuss other aspects of our group.
- Should we change our venue?
- Alternating locations, e.g. North Dearborn and Lawrenceburg, North Dearborn and Hidden Valley, etc?
- Something totally different, e.g. a restaurant ?
- Should we change the meeting times?
- Suggest special discussion or presentation topics, e.g. dialog tags.
- Suggest guest speakers.
Please offer your suggestions as a comment to this post. We can continue the discussion at our December 15 meeting. But we need to finalize any venue changes at that meeting so we can distribute new posters during the last half of the month.
