networking, social activities range from formal no-host luncheons to
relaxed pot lucks. Intimate coffee klatches geared to peers with
similar interests also are provided. This year we will form into genre specific small groups to further encourage interaction among peers.
Time is frequently left
unstructured, enabling writers to ask questions, network, and
bond. Most find these gatherings with their peers invigorating. From
these events, many have made wonderful friendships, key in supporting a
writer's sometimes solitary lifestyle.
Professionally, our bi-monthly
includes industry articles and trends, information regarding upcoming
events, opportunities for self-promotion, articles and poetry by
our writers, plus much more. Additionally, weekly updates
notify members of local writing workshops, classes,
conferences and literary events. There are no fees for these services.
