Have a Slice of Pi …

Leave a comment


Yay! Yay! It’s Pi Day! No, we didn’t overlook the last letter, March 14th really is International Pi day as in 3.14 … So, if you need some great ideas for your own Pi-Day-Pi-Tay, you might want to consider the following:


Feel free to dance along with the music of Pi …


Feel free to gather your friends and put those often overlooked dominoes to good use, or at least time-consuming use …


If you’d like to offer slices of pie to as many of your friends who can recite – from memory – the most digits of the more than one trillion that make up a small part of pi, here’s a  peek at the first million – just to satisfy your curiosity…


And if you’d like to celebrate this very important number while supporting one of the many libraries that are near and dear to WordWrites Guild members’ hearts, you are invited to join the Friends of the Lawrenceburg Public Library for some edible sweet pie (and quiche – the savory twin!), and a mathematical movie – Hidden Figures. The evening begins at 6:00pm in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Library. This is a free community, adults-only event, so bring your friends aand join the Friends as they support the library on International Pi Day – March 14th!

You are cordially invited to attend the first WordWrites Guild meeting to be held in the meeting room of the Harrison Branch of the Cincinnati Public Library tonight from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We will critique Susan T.’s latest chapters, share our unique interpretations of this month’s three-word writing prompt (factitious, enhance and excruciating), and share our writing experiences with fellow wordies.

There is no need to RSVP – simply stop by and get to know this community of writers. We look forward to seeing you this evening.

Heading to Harrison!

WHO is WordWrites Guild and WHY should I attend a meeting?

WordWrites Guild is a gathering of all kinds of writers. One member is a published author of children’s books, another contributes to equestrian publications, and yet another writes features and the occasional news story for a regional newspaper. There are also poets and short-short story writers. Some members have never been published but hope to see their work in print one day, and some members simply enjoy writing just for themselves. WWG members include life-long writers, those who are new to writing, and a few who are returning to it after a long absence.

On any given evening, you might meet one or all of these friendly, welcoming wordsmiths. If you are interested in the written word, WWG is interested in meeting you! By attending a meeting, you will have ample opportunity to share ideas, writing projects, questions, challenges, successes and all things writing in a supportive, positive and respectful environment.

Please contact WWG for more information – or just stop by the next meeting in Lawrenceburg, Indiana or Harrison, Ohio!

  • Beginning in February, WWG will resume twice a month meetings for the remainder of 2018: every second Thursday evening in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and every fourth Wednesday from 6-8pm in Harrison, Ohio. Location details will be announced in the coming week.


  • To celebrate National Poetry Month, drop-in writing sessions are scheduled for every Tuesday in April at 2:00pm at the North Dearborn Public Library.

  • WordWrites Guild is delighted to announce that Maureen Sheets, CPA, will be our guest speaker in May, 2018. Ms. Sheets will talk with WWG members about the business side of writing, and will be available to answer general questions about the importance of record keeping, what is an allowable deduction, and the difference between writing as a business or as a hobby.



There is always something happening with WordWrites Guild, so mark your calendar with the locations and times of monthly meetings; make a date with your creative self in April for Tuesdays at Two; plan for a fiscally informative evening in May, and be sure to sign up for regular updates so you will always know what’s new at WordWrites Guild!

… for taking the time to participate in our recent survey, and for your interest in WordWrites Guild. Although the Community Connections survey has closed, we look forward to sharing ideas, suggestions and answering questions at upcoming WordWrites Guild meetings and events.

Your input matters, and already changes are underway to better meet the needs of area writers. Please plan to attend the next WWG meeting on February 8th in the Depot Room at Lawrenceburg Public Library from 6:00pm until 8:00pm to learn more.



Looking Forward to Seeing You!

Wow – November has arrived even before a lot of us were able to really enjoy October’s breezy evenings and crunchy leaves. Now it’s time for cider and gourds and pie!

On Thursday, November 9th, area writers are invited to drop by the North Dearborn Library to share their work for some friendly feedback, take part in respectful critiques of members’ projects, and read whatever they’ve come up with based upon the most recent writing prompt.

We are also asking members to stop by the front desk at the North Dearborn Branch Library to thank the manager, librarians, staff and volunteers for all that they have done for WWG and for the community. This second Thursday in November will be the last official WWG meeting at North Dearborn as we make a few changes to better serve writers throughout Southeastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati region.

Please note that we will NOT meet on the fourth Thursday of November due to the holiday. If you haven’t already done so, you might want to subscribe to WordWrites Guild in order to stay up to date on all that will be going on in the coming year. We have some changes planned and a few events in the works that you won’t want to miss – including our annual Open House on December 14th in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library – but more about that later.


Thank you for your continued support of and participation in WordWrites Guild. We look forward to seeing you soon!
