We're on Facebook!
Delmarva Christian Writers' Fellowship has a presence on Facebook! Click the Facebook icon to log into your
personal account and it will take you straight to our "closed group" (where anyone can see the group and who's in it; only members can see what is posted).
Social media networking is one of the most effective free tools for writers, and DCWF is doing our best to keep in step with the Spirit as we stay abreast of technology. As soon as you have a Facebook identity, jump right in. This is a learn-as-we-go venture.
DCWF Yahoo Group!
Do you desire a more in-depth critique than time allows during our regular meetings? Then post your manuscript in the "Current Meeting" folder on our Yahoo! group. Here's how:
You can feel confident posting your manuscript on our Yahoo! group because of the secure server. Only approved members of the fellowship will be able to open them.
To join, visit: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DCWF
We encourage you to post your manuscript one week prior to the meeting so we'll have time to critique it in advance.
If you edit a posted manuscript, print out your "track changes" pages and bring them to the meeting to discuss and present to the author during our critique time.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTING:
If you want to post a manuscript on our Yahoo! group in advance of the meeting, sign in at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DCWF. Then look on the left-hand side at the menu options. Click on "Files." When that window opens, you'll see a folder for the current meeting. Open it and click "Add File" near the top on the right. Click click on "Browse" for the File Name you want to add. Then click the "Upload" button at the bottom right. If this doesn't work, send it to me via email, and I'll post it for you.
If you have a WIP you want feedback on but don't plan to present it at a regular meeting, you may post your manuscript in the blank area. Again, be sure to post a message so we'll know it's there. Members may email their critiques directly to the author.
We're a friendly group, don't be shy. If you're interested in becoming a member of DCWF, there are no application forms to fill out or dues to pay. Just show up at one of our meetings where we'll capture your name and contact information. We have a lot of resources and encouragement to offer, and new members always bring a lot to the group.
Established in 1993, DCWF meets the third Saturday of the month at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, Tunnell Hall, 203 North Bedford Street, Georgetown, DE 19947, from 9 AM to Noon. Meeting attendance runs from eight to 28. Many are beginning writers who are mentored by those who have been published. It is an informal gathering for critiquing and encouragement with resources to build up the Christian who writes. We follow a meeting agenda, but there is no membership fee or pressure; however, we do hold one another accountable to see progress in our writing. Meetings typically include a devotional, shared information, a teaching, manuscript critiques, and prayer. Friendships are fostered over lunch and between meetings. On occasion, we host day-long writing seminars or retreats and encourage participation in regional/national conferences. Follow us on Facebook.
