What?  It's that time AGAIN?

Submissions for this Saturday's meeting must be posted on the Wiki by the end of today.  If you don't have access to the Wiki, please see below. The meeting starts at 9:30 AM at the newly renamed The Write Occasion. No, they did not rename it for us, but it's hard to avoid calling it the The Writers' Office.

As you know, Saturday mornings are busy times there, so please come early to to purchase your beverage of choice (and breakfast if you want it), sign in, and pay your $1.25 dues. We will all cluster around that neat area with the sofa's until we can move to the conference room.  I have it booked up four months in advance now, so we won't have to do this every time.

Below, I have pasted the rules for submissions and what to do if you are new:

If you are new you won't have access to the Wiki until you have

  1. Come to a meeting

  2. Sent me an email asking for access.

If would like to submit and/or read others' submissions, please email me at [address removed] with a valid email address (not this site). Attach your submission and give me a comment on the submission. I will post both. If you want to read submissions, please say so and I will send you a zip file on Thursday with all of the submissions in it.

If you have been to a meeting and still do not have access, please email me at [address removed] from a valid email address (not this site) and I will send you an invitation.  Please do not go directly to site and ask for access.

 

Rules for submissions:

EACH PAGE of your submission should have a header which includes:

  • Title of your work

  • A copyright symbol followed by your name.

  • Current Page number / Number of pages.

There is a template page on the Meetup Site under More->Files.

 

Do NOT use .docx files. Many word processors will not open them. DO use .doc or in a pinch.rtf.  Please do NOT use .pdf files. Also, please do not lock your headers, because if you do and they are incorrect, I cannot fix them.

 

Maximum length is 20 pages

 

Submissions should be posted on the Meeting page and should be:

  • Double spaced.

  • At least 12 pt. type UNLESS you space between each paragraph.  If you do, you may use 1.5 spaced lines.

  • Legible Type like Arial Helvetica or Times Roman


Please bring a few extra copies of your submission for others.
