Autumn, 1893 Artist: Harry Siddons Mowbray, American, born Egypt, 1858 – 1928
Change is in the air. We wrap it around our bare shoulders on chilly evenings, and we taste it when we bite into hard, cold, just-picked apples. We smell it in smoke-infused breezes and we see it along woodland paths of rust and gold.
This season of change is a fitting time for the WordWrites Guild to announce a new schedule and an invigorating event. As you may already know, tomorrow’s meeting marks the beginning of the new WWG meeting schedule:
Every SECOND Thursday of the month,
we will meet at North Dearborn Branch Library
Every FOURTH Thursday of the month,
we will meet at the Lawrenceburg Public Library
Our meeting times remain the same – from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, and the premise of the group is unchanged; that is, to offer encouragement, support, and respectful critique to every writer who joins our friendly group to share a love of writing with fellow word-wranglers.
In keeping with our open-door approach to membership and our commitment to the community, WordWrites Guild is hosting the first annual Writers’ Festival on Thursday, October 27th in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.
This free event is open to the public from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM, and offers everyone an opportunity to meet a variety of writers, illustrators, and more. Along with refreshments, there will be a Book Title Scavenger Hunt, a Community Build-a-Book, and terrific door prizes (including a special prize for anyone bringing in our display ad from the Beacon newspaper).
If you, or someone you know, would like to reserve a space (completely free of any fees or charges) to showcase and sell your published books, or if you might like to volunteer for the evening, please contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
Please be sure to join us for this inaugural event, and feel free to bring family and friends – it is only with your attendance that the evening will be a success. Thank you for your interest, your support and your enthusiasm.
