Lisa Falkner challenged us in December to identify our Writing Vision, Mission, and Goals for 2018. Because of the holidays and inclement weather, a number of our members were unable to attend. Lisa's presentation was so well received and the time was so short that we decided to continue the exercise at our January meeting.
Habakkuk 2:2 states: “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Proverbs 29:18 mentions that “where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”
Vision is important to help us pursue our dreams. What is your vision for your writing? What are you trying to accomplish? Who are you going to reach? How are you going to get there? Join Lisa Falkner as she shares tips for developing a personal vision, mission, and goals for your writing. We will be provided with questions and tips to help us stay focused, accountable, and productive in our writing in the coming year.
CRITIQUING: Please note that we have changed the guidelines to 10-20 copies of a maximum of three (3) double-spaced pages with one-inch margins and 12-pt. font. Also, please use the Line Numbering feature in Microsoft Word for your manuscript (go to the Layout tab and click Line Numbering). This will automatically number each line for quicker reference during the critiquing process.
REFRESHMENTS: Rebecca Jones will be the keeper of the refreshments bag with our supplies. Betty Kasperski has volunteered to provide the food.

Purpose of DCWF
What you can expect from DCWF
Here we are at our monthly meeting in Oct. 2008 where our teaching was about manuscript formatting and how to navigate Microsoft Word. It is becoming more common for our members to bring their laptops. We're doing our best to keep abreast of the leaps and bounds of technology.
Established in 1993, the group has approx. 45 members on the rolls with an average attendance of 8 to 15 and a regional mailing list of 130. The majority are new writers who are mentored by those of us who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with numerous resources to build up the Christian who writes.
There is no membership fee, no "formal" agenda, and no pressure, but we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing.
We meet once a month, the third Saturday, from 9 until 12:30 (sometimes 10 to 2). Our meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, critique groups, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats.
A number of our members attend regional or national conferences (visit www.writehisanswer.com for links to the Philadelphia and Colorado conferences).
