Hello Fellow Writers,

I came across a website FULL of awesome information for writers. The name is DIY MFA (Do It Yourself, Masters of Fine Arts). Gabriela Pereira (an author at Jane Friedman with 299 books under her belt), is the power behind the site. She offers a starter kit for writers that is ~~30 pages of useful information.

I signed for a WRITER INGITER (ONLINE) CONFERENCE to be held on October 24-25. Her line-up of sessions sounds fantastic.

Just wanted to pass this info on in case anyone else was interested.

See everyone on the 30th !!!

Writers Write !!!


**** MEETING MAY 28, 2015 ****

Hello Everyone,

The members of Pen To Paper St. Charles invite you to attend our upcoming May 28th meeting !!! This meeting will be OPEN to anyone who would like to come and share their WIP (work in progress) and receive a round-robin critique of YOUR work !!!

We will meet this Thursday evening at the Spencer Creek Library, 2nd Floor. The meeting time is 7:00-8:45.

Due to an unfortunate finger-meeting-slammed car door injury prior to our last meeting, I will  bring  the handout that covers the important topic, “Protecting Your Writing,” to this Thursday’s meeting. Clearly, our best security is a written contract, but understanding the contract’s implications can be difficult.

Join us and learn how to avoid some common and costly mistakes.

See you Thursday !!!

Tammy Lough, Member
