The RGV Writers’ Connection is happening! Mark your calendars. Saturday, August 3rd at 10:00 a.m. Come to the Third Place on the 2nd Floor of the McAllen Chamber’s Creative Incubator, the old McAllen library, 601 N. Main. First Saturdays of each month except July and December. So, 10 months a year we will gather.
McAllen has an Art Community and I believe we need a Writers Community. Writing can be a solitary and at times, confusing, career. The Connection is simply . . . a Writers’ Hangout. If you’re the kind of writer who always wants to learn more about your craft, other means and ways to use it, like to help others and would like to interact with those of the same ilk as you, then The Connection is for you.
Coffee and snacks will be served. It will only be an hour’s meeting where we will get to know each other and the style writing we do, projects we’re working on. This can be a time to do a reading as you prepare to hit the public circuit, learn what other styles of writing there is to be had in the Valley, begin your career with a support group beside you and absorbing something new from the presentations we'll have.
Though there are various pockets of writers’ groups around the Valley, there is not a specific gathering for all writers whether they be company writers, writers of social media, books or blogs, journalists or magazine writers, published or wanna-be writers, etc. We can combine our knowledge and share with all. Join the RGV Writers’ Registry, a new go-to for companies looking for a certain type of writer.
Since this is for the whole realm of writers, it will be a time to offer encouragement, guidance and friendship. If you have fallen in love with the Wacky World of Words, this is the place for you.
