October – Picture Perfect

Leave a comment

Trees transform; their colors fluid, moving from green to red, yellow, and orange. Agile leaves dance through golden light as if nature has cast a magical spell upon them. Jewel-toned woods, winding trails, crisp air, and cozy sweaters – it’s time to pack your word bag and plan an outing to WordWrites Guild on October 11th from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

Our writing prompt for this meeting is shared by WWG member Laura P. who took this photograph while exploring the oxbow recently.  For anyone who has visited the oxbow, this picture of woodlands and fields, sky and space is familiar. For anyone who has yet to experience these protected wetlands, you might want to clear your calendar on the day of your visit. Once inside the tranquil world of the oxbow, you may find that one step leads to another, and that openness, that wildness and that beauty is difficult to leave.

It is especially fitting that our writing prompt is a glimpse of the oxbow. We are delighted to have received the entries for the writing contest and are currently reviewing them.

Within a few days we will be notifying winners and awarding prizes!

We sincerely thank everyone who participated in this contest. We hope that you delighted in your visits to the oxbow and had fun writing your essays, memoirs, poems, etc. as much as we enjoyed reading your submissions.

As always, we invite every word-geek, word-monger, word-crafter and word-aficionado to stop by the following WordWrites Guild meetings. We’d love to meet you!

WordWrites Guild members are unique in their style of writing, their approach to story telling, and their choice of genre, but they also have many things in common- not the least of which is an encouraging attitude toward new writers. Every word-crafter is invited to attend the Fourth Thursday, August 23rd WWG meeting. Local writers, poets, novelists, short story writers, et al will gather in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm to share work and offer support to fellow wordsmiths.

If you have been searching for a place to create, offer guidance and receive respectful support, then WordWrites Guild is the place for you. Please drop by the Ewbank Room meeting on the fourth Thursday of every month. And if that isn’t convenient, we also host a Depot Room meeting every second Thursday of each month.  Both meetings are held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library, are completely free of charge, and are welcoming, friendly places to share, learn, and discover.

The writing prompt for August 23rd’s WordWrites meeting is one that’s guaranteed to crank up your imagination.  Choose someone from the past, be it historical, fictional, or otherwise, and bring them forward in time to present-day 21st century. Poems, short stories, diary entries, blogs–all are welcome. It will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with.

Networking is important to writers. At the last WordWrites meeting, Liz Loche shared her tips for social media, with an emphasis on how to set up accounts for Twitter, Instagram, and Tumbler and the benefits and drawbacks of each. Thank you, Liz, for such an enlightening presentation.

If you are interested in combining writing and nature, there’s still time to enter the Oxbow Writing contest. It is open to all writers who have visited the Oxbow wetlands. The deadline for the contest is September 14, 2018. For more information about the contest and the lovely, protected Oxbow, please visit http://www.oxbowinc.org

The next WordWrites Guild meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 23, 2018, at 6 p.m. in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.
