It is hard to believe that summer is almost over, and back-to-school time is right around the corner.  Why not squeeze in one last field trip by visiting the Oxbow. It is beautiful this time of year, and it is always changing.

As many of you know, Oxbow, Inc. and WordWrites Guild have joined forces to co-sponsor a regional writing contest open to all writers who have visited the Oxbow wetlands, located in part near Greendale, Indiana. For more information about this lovely, protected area, please visit http://www.oxbowinc.org. For more information about the contest itself, please click on the Writing Contest tab above. The deadline for the contest is September 14.

 

WordWrites Guild is open to writers of all kinds, from beginners, to accomplished writers, from those with an idea, to those working on something bigger. All are invited to become a member of WWG and share their writing successes and challenges, to submit work for review or critique, and/or to share their writing-prompt-inspired literary creations with the group.

There are those who never write in the margins of books, and then there are those who jot down everything–even their most precious secrets–in the white spaces of reading material. Search through your books (especially those purchased second hand) for marginalia. Let your imagination run wild as you consider the meaning of these jottings and imagine what the person who wrote them would be like. Use these ideas as a writing prompt for a story or poem or whatever comes to mind.  (For more ideas, visit http://www.atlasobscura.com/article/best-notes-written-in-books) Then visit WordWrites on August 9 to share your work.

At the next meeting, Liz Loche will discuss and help set up accounts for Social Media Marketing. If your are a writer who would like to “get your name out there”, this is the meeting for you.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 9th from 6:00-8:00, in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.
