I see that your group has been in need of a sponsor. As it turns out, meetup allows organizers to run more than 1 group at no additional charge. Therefore, I put West Suburban Writers, Artists & Musicians on my account. I plan to keep the group open for at least another year.
I want you guys to run this group as you see fit. So, if you wish to be an Assistant Organizer, please let me know and I will set it up as soon as I see your email.
Please talk about your ideas in the discussion "Assistant Organizers and Suggestions Needed". Those who want to be Assistant Organizers, please make a point to post and watch this discussion.
I look forward to hearing from everyone. Please let me know if you want to be involved in organizing, or have suggestions.
This is a chance for artists of all sorts in the West Suburbs of Chicago -- whether your medium is expressed visually, verbally, sonically, or some combination -- to cross-pollinate, gather ideas and energy, and find inspiration, consolation and encouragement. The hope is to gather regularly as a group, creating opportunities to organize smaller klatches, as well as opportunities to find like spirit and lasting artistic relationships. We may even be able to organize readings, performances and showings.
Note the change: We were the Oak Park Writers, Artists & Musicians group -- We are now the West Suburban Writers, Artists & Musicians group.
