Rebecca Jones, our facilitator for March, will open her church to us, The Lighthouse, on Rt. 9. Not only that, but she will share one of her most captivating talents: The Art of Storytelling. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, there is always value in the telling of a tale. Don't miss Rebecca's segment on how to write a story that will draw your readers in.
As always, if you have a manuscript you want critiqued, bring ten copies of up to five double spaced pages.
See you at The Lighthouse Church on Saturday!
Wilma Caraway has been invited to make a presentation in April at the Methodists Women’s Annual Spring Conference to discuss Christian publishing and local authors. If you would like your books placed on the book table for viewing and/or selling, please bring them to the March DCWF meeting. They're expecting about 50 attendees, and since Wilma can't carry too many books, two or three books from each author will be sufficient. Also, provide a brief statement promoting your book, include how you were inspired to write, how you came up with the title, etc. Be sure to have your books priced. You can supply your business cards. For additional information email Wilma at email@example.com or give her a call at 302.337.7181.
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).
