Lisa Falkner will facilitate our December meeting on the 19th (this Saturday) and has chosen "The Write Time" for our theme. As we celebrate the birth of our Savior and the end of another year, she hopes to help us ignite our creativity by responding to writing prompts. No groaning, please. Writing prompts can help us stretch beyond our comfort zones. Let’s have some fun!
The main item of business will be to solicit volunteers to fill a variety of roles for 2019. Primarily, we're seeking commitments from those who are interested in facilitating a meeting and/or providing refreshments for the following dates (3rd Saturday): January 19, February 16, March 16, April 20, May 18, June 15, July 20, (no meeting in August), September 21, October 19 (Vine & Vessels Conference), November 16, December 21.
If time permits, we will critique manuscripts. If you're interested, please bring 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 Layout and click Line Numbering).
REFRESHMENTS: This is our Christmas meeting, and thanks to the tradition that David Smith initiated decades ago, all who attend are encouraged to bring holiday goodies. In addition to sweets, please consider offerings that would be suitable for lunch. Mmmm.

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).
