    September 2021 Meeting

    September 14, 2021 Ray, Homer and Marla enjoy a pleasant evening during our September meetup.   •The meeting was held on James’ birthday in his adorable backyard and it was a lovely night. Great food, great ambiance, great people.  I’ll post pics at the end of the email ;) •James gave us a rundown of the online stuff. We have about 60 Word Addicts members total and 120 email subscribers.  We have 2,000 Twitter followers, 80 Instagram Followers (better than 10 I guess haha!), and 600+ Facebook followers/friends.  •A huge benefit for members is the online presence and promotion that we offer as a group. The requirements to receive these benefits are as follows: -Be local member  -Write for the blog once a year  -Contribute in some way to the yearly anthology  •To get a book promoted (3 social media posts and an email), authors have to write a short article on a very narrow topic. We’ve thrown around the idea of doing a series of social media posts featuring short stories or the beginning

    Meeting To Discuss Expansion To Non-local Members

    We held a special meeting tonight due to the fact that several non-local writers have expressed interest in joining Word Addicts.  Word Addicts was formed in 2015 when Allison Brown asked a few friends to get together and talk about writing.  Two years later we released our first anthology, and we continued to meet monthly. We released a second anthology in 2018.  In late 2019 and early 2020 we reorganized, took on the name Word Addicts, created a website and blog, began a social media campaign. Until now we've been a local group living within a few miles of each other.  Tonight we held a meeting to address how we might expand as a group. We are excited to expand this way. We want to partner with writers everywhere and learn from them, benefit from their knowledge and talents, and enjoy our mutual support.   What do we currently offer members: Opportunities to give and receive feedback on writing. Once-monthly video conferences to discuss writing, receive training, etc... Opportu
