Thanks to everyone who made the potluck social on May 11, 2016, a success and shared their “One Happy Memory.”
Our next meeting, June 8, 2016, will be an interesting one. It is mid year and time to assess ourselves. We will be sharing information about our group’s structure. In addition to the monthly meeting which is open to everyone, our subgroups meet separately. These subgroups are geared towards individuals’ interests, such as Periodicals, Poetry, Critique, Memoir Writing, etc. Visitors and members alike will get more information about the subgroups available, as well as their meeting times and places. If there is an interest in forming a new subgroup, that is great! Each officer of the MIWI will explain their role in the organization – president, secretary, treasurer, publicity chair, anthology chair, farmers market chair. The tone of the meeting will be conversational, with hopefully lively participation from everyone generating ideas and/or innovation.
Marco Island Writers, Inc. is open to writers of all skill levels and genres. If you write for yourself, just your family, or want to be published, our group may be just the boost you need to assist you in that writing project and support you through any obstacles. Our motto is “Writers Helping Writers.” Meeting place is the Marco Island Center for the Arts, 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island. First time visitors are welcome with no admission fee. We meet the second Wednesday of each month, year round, from 6 to 8 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM for sign-in and social prior to the meeting.
