From the Desk of the President – October 2014
The time has come for our October mini-conference. Be sure to register and to sign up for a pitch session with one of our three editor/agents. We will also announce the winners of our Molly and Aspen Gold contests, so be sure to come and cheer on the finalists!
We will take our conference speakers to dinner on Friday night. Come join us if you can. It is a great opportunity to talk to new people in a relaxed and informal setting.
It’s also time to vote for next year’s officers. Thanks to everyone who volunteered to run next year! Ballots will be emailed to members, and we will also have some on hand at the conference.
Information about the anthology is posted in the forum. Start working on your 5,000 word story.
Several events are in the planning stage for next year. Stay tuned for further developments, and talk to a board member if you would like to volunteer to help out with anything. We need people to run our contests – The Molly and Aspen Gold, next year. Having several people work on a project makes it much easier.
The brain-storming sessions have been a big hit, so I think we should continue to have them. Talk to Grace or Mary if you would like to host a session. Bring a specific question or get help planning the entire story.
Enjoy the writing!
