2014 MWC Planning Meeting Summary

A former member
Hello Th'Inkers!
Our December Planning Meeting produced a list of general session meetups for 2014 and agreed to promote two critique sessions per month going forward along with the general meetup every second Saturday afternoon. New general meetups and critique schedules will be uploaded shortly and tweaked as needed throughout the year.
Critique meetups will be prefaced with a very basic template of activities so members will be aware of what to expect: we may have to limit these in size due to attendance (to be determined), and some critiquing can be built online within meetup on the message board or through general email. Those will be handled by Brittney Shideler and Allison Kaserman - with volunteer assistance from other members.  Big shout out for both ladies and their generous donation of time and energy.  They will provide the template for each meetup along with other information.
EVENTS 2014
We all need to keep our fingers on the pulse of writing events.  Please post these as you find them via the general email or discussion board - some can replace scheduled meetups or become meetups in themselves.
Please watch for:

  • Conventions: local as well as out of state
  • Book Signings: libraries, book stores - wherever you find them
  • Writer's Retreats: these groups are a great reward and challenge - they help keep the fire stoked!

NETWORKING and MARKETING! the industry is changing - use this meetup to find resources
Please create your own page on the pages tab and fill it with information that outlines what kind of help you need or what kind of help you can provide. This area can be informative and rich in resources:
