October Meeting Reminder

This is a reminder that the next meeting takes place tomorrow night, Tuesday October 20th at 6:00 pm, at the Elmsdale Library. The counter to the left of this post counts down the days to the next meeting.

Reminder: We will be doing a reading exercise. So don’t forget your 500-word (or so) short story. Print one copy in an easy to read font and place it on the counter, face down, when you walk into the meeting room. Please, do NOT put your name on the story. Stories are to be read anonymously.

We’ll also have a mini workshop.

And…lastly…think of one writing goal you’d like to accomplish between now and the October meeting. This time, I won’t forget the envelopes.

*Please note the new times: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
