Grab an Umbrella, Don the Galoshes!

This soggy prompt might open up a watershed of ideas:

The bus shelter in the rain

Of course you know the routine – just write whatever you’d like using the prompt as inspiration, but limiting your masterpiece to 500 words or fewer.

Our next WordWrites Guild meeting will be held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm on Thursday, June 22nd – rain or shine!

Autumn Schedule

Leave a comment

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.

Upcoming Changes

3 Comments

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.

Kickoff Meeting

Just a reminder to everyone.  The Kickoff meeting will be 6:30 PM, Thursday, June 16 at the North Dearborn Branch Library in the Dunevant Meeting Room 1.  Hope to see a big group as we get started.

WordWrites Guild Launch

All writers from the Cincinnati Tristate region are invited to attend the first meeting of the WordWrites Guild on Thursday, June 16th at the North Dearborn Branch Library from 6:30-7:30pm.

Monthly meetings provide area writers with an opportunity to connect with other wordsmiths in a supportive and professional environment.

The WordWrites Guild emphasizes respectful and practical peer critiques and provides dynamic writing exercises at each gathering.  Attention is given periodically to a specific issue or subject important to developing writers.

This newly formed writers’ group welcomes writers of any genre and of all skill levels.  The focus of the Guild is to encourage and educate all writers in a considerate and yet challenging peer environment.

For further information feel free to contact us with any questions at: wordwritesguild@gmail.com
