From the President:
With the 2011-2012 year of MWG coming to a close, I’d like to thank those who have supported us—both returning and new members, as well as the different organizations we’ve been fortunate enough to work with these past months. Also, I’m sending hugs and gratitude to Stephanie Lawton, April Higgenbotham, and Dawn Steadham for plugging along with me.
All the best for next season of writing!
2011-2012 MWG president
Our next meeting is this Thursday, May 3, at the West Regional Library from 6-7:30pm. We will be voting for the 2012-2013 officers (the nominees that have accepted and were seconded are: President- Carrie Cox, Vice President- Angela Trigg, Treasurer- Lisa Denham, and Secretary- Stephanie Lawton.) Also, Stephanie will be leading us in a live query critique and Q&A.
The next Open Mic for MWG is May 17th at Serda’s Coffee from 6-8 p.m. Ten readers, who each have 10 minutes to read their work, will be sharing their words with us. To sign up, please e-mail Dee Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be our last Open Mic until September, so make every effort to attend.
The summer social “Drink-n-Scrawl” is back for 2012. We’ll be meeting the third Saturdays from 2-4pm at The Bluegill Restaurant on the Causeway. Several writing groups from across the bay plan on joining us, and it is open for all to attend. Please mark your calendars for June 16, July 21, and August 18.
Stephanie Lawton will be at the July First Friday Author Round-up at Page and Pallete in Fairhope to promote the June release of her first novel, Want.
Send us your news and updates over the summer. We will still send out the monthly newsletter and forward any important information.
