Thanks to everyone who entered. The coordinators are working on getting your score sheets and entries back to you as quickly as possible.
The winners will be announced at Trista Michael’s Romfest in June.
Please bear with us as we still have a few entries out for discrepancy judging.
Our monthly meeting is Saturday, April 13th at the Ftn. City Library. The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. Our guest speaker is Bob Mayer. The workshop topics are The Original Idea and The Conflict Box. We look forward to seeing you there!
We will once again be meeting at the Fountain City library at 10 a.m. and our guest speaker will be Janice Maynard. We are thrilled to have her with us.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the SMRW monthly meeting scheduled for Saturday, January 12th at 10:00 a.m. has been cancelled. If you were planning to attend, we apologize for the inconvenience. Also, be on the lookout for special announcements coming soon about the 2013 Laurie, and next month’s guest speaker, Anna DeStefano.
Our annual retreat is now over, and our members had a wonderful time! Lots of writing accomplished, with Trista Michaels taking the award for most written with over 18,000 words! It’s a great way to start a new year.
Many thanks to all those who attended and helped make the retreat special. And also, we’d like to thank Cabins USA for their great service. The cabin was lovely, with all the amenities we could’ve asked for, responsive service, and a nice quiet place where we could write.
Our January meeting is next Saturday at the Ftn. City Branch Library. We start at 10:00 a.m. The program will be a judging workshop.
