On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, Marco Island Writers, Inc. (MIW) will welcome our own Joanne Tailele, president of MIW, as she takes us “Back to the Basics of Writing.” She will share what she has learned over the past few years in her own writing career and refocus our attention from marketing to our love for writing.
A hearty thank you to Barbara Miller, guest speaker at our October 14, 2015 meeting. Barbara gave an excellent presentation on Goodreads.com including a very organized 3-page handout of how to sign up and maneuver around the site, the etiquette of posting, the importance of an author bio, the role of “librarians” on Goodreads, and many other tips.
The flash fiction prompt was “Tricks or Treats,” and thanks to all whoparticipated. The stories varied from poignant to scary to bizarre – perfect for Halloween.
