From the Desk of The President – February, 2014
There seems to be a lot of interest in doing an anthology, and we have volunteers to keep it moving along. We are looking at stories of di?erent lengths from very short to up to 12,000 words. Our theme is Potporri. Stay tuned for further details as they become available.[livicon name="notebook" htmltag="span" size="32" color="#990000" hovercolor="#003699" animate="true" loop="false" eventtype="hover" onparent="false" duration="1400" iteration="4" styles="height:48px;"]
You should receive the updated by-laws on the email loop, along with a brief summary of the changes provided by RWA. As a chapter, we need to decide if we are going to approve them, so please read over them and we will accept your votes. I’d like to get most votes at the meeting, but we will have email voting available as well. The changes mainly deal with the number/titles of board members, term limits for holding offices, and some changes to the treasurer’s position, as well as an increased emphasis on pursuing a career in romance writing.
We will have a representative from a local start-up company, Beneath the Ink, to speak at our February meeting. They have an easy way to add information to an ebook using technology that isn’t an app. You can add text, audio, maps, recipes, graphic images or other things that readers can explore at their leisure to add to the novel-reading experience. This will be a hands-on experience that should be entertaining. You can get a pre vie w at their website: www.beneaththeink.com.
We’ll see everyone at the Virginia Village library on February 15. Stay warm.
Enjoy the writing!
