Writing and Business

Blending creativity with bookkeeping is one of the more difficult challenges often faced by writers, artists, and musicians. WordsWrites Guild members frequently ask about the business side of their work, so in answer to those questions, we have invited Indiana CPA Maureen Sheets to our May 10th meeting in the Depot Room at the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

Ms. Sheets is an experienced accountant who has taught community finance classes and finances for women. She is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, not only about general record keeping and taxation, but is fully aware that writers, both professional and those just starting out, have concerns specific to their line of work. Following Ms. Sheets’ presentation, she will be happy to answer verbal and written questions from the audience.

This free program is open to the public, and reservations are not necessary. Although this event is geared particularly toward writers, anyone involved in the creation of art – literary, visual, etc. – will find useful information and a welcoming community of follow creatives at Thursday evening’s 6:00pm program.

We look forward to seeing you!

With a Song in One’s Heart

Sometimes the best way to celebrate spring is by ignoring the weather, gathering an armload of flowers, and singing out loud.

When you do sing out loud or hum or bob your head without a sound, what tune are you hearing? Is it an old standard made famous by Frank or Dean? Is it a jaunty snippet from a classic television program, or is it your favorite aria?

Whatever the music, you dear writer, are invited to be a lyricist this month. Choose the tune and write the words, then share your musical moment with fellow song-stylists on Thursday, April 12th in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm.

If you’d rather not sing your way through the evening, never fear – the fun is in the writing, so there will be no need to practice scales or stock up on lozenges. Reading newly crafted lyrics for old favorites will be just as entertaining – and wonderfully free from sharps and flats!

We’re looking forward to seeing  – and hearing? – you on

the second Thursday in April.

LaLaLaaaaaa!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
