I know we have several new and returning members and I'd like to extend a BIG HODRW welcome to you all. A few of you have attended the last meeting or two, but we'd still love top have you chime in with who you are and where you're at on your writing path as well as what kind of writing you're focused on right now.
We have some outstanding programs coming up in the next few months, so everyone mark your calendars now! This month we have the fabulous Pam McCutcheon speaking to us on Writing a great synopsis. Trust me, no one knows this better than Pam who has written a book on the subject. Plan to be there next week at 10:00 am at the Englewood Public Library.
In April we will be having New York Times best-selling author Joan Johnston. That is a not-to-be-missed workshop on great beginnings and fabulous endings.
Then in May is the annual all day workshop we share with CRW (Colorado Romance Writers). Registration has just opened and seating is limited so reserve your place soon.
On a different note, don't forget our upcoming contests. The Aspen Gold is our contest for published authors, and the Molly is our highly respected contest for unpublished writers. We will continue to give you all more information on both.
Heart of Denver also has several other ongoing events for our members. About once a month we hold the Book-In-A-Week challenge for everyone wanting to kick start their writing or challenge themselves on any writing issue they are dealing with
from editing to, plotting, to finishing a book. Becky Martinez will clue us all in when the next one will be coming up.
We also hold a brainstorming session about every other month that all members are welcome to attend. They are a great way to get help with a plot, a title, a scene, or characters, anything that has you stuck or uncertain what to do next.
I hope to see you all this coming Saturday and, again, new members please feel free to let us know who you are.
