We had a big meeting this month. I think that will be our January meeting from year to year: A lot of big decisions.
Direction For Word Addicts
We had a whirlwind year last year with huge changes and big goals. As the dust has settled, here's the direction we've found:
We have our local Word Addicts and our expanded group of Word Addicts. We will have our local meetings where we conduct writing exercises and give feedback, etc...Then we will have our expanded group who will participate in our anthology. This will include local and non-local writers. The expanded anthology group will do all of its work online through messaging apps, email, Google Docs, Google Meet, etc...
Election: Nominations were made, and seconded, and affirmed by those present. James presided over the meeting and the election was held near the end.
President: Jenna Madsen
Vice-president: Ray Truitt
Secretary: James Mitchell
Lawrence Gardner remains treasurer.
We will follow the same timeframes as last year. More info will come very soon.
James will send a signup form. At this time we are inviting specific individuals to submit, and all submissions will be accepted. Everyone must agree to rigorous editing and some ground rules.
Each writer will choose a literary theme and write a story within that theme. We chose the common thread for each story by tossing ideas in a hat and choosing one: Each story must contain an old cottage somewhere in it. Stay tuned for the signup form for details.
Lawrence has a retail space and said Word Addicts can use it as a retail space for books by our writers. He would like a 10% consignment for sales. Jenna recommended a Venmo account. We'll talk over the next month and look at the possibilities.
James will create an anthology signup sheet and we'll get to work on this year's anthology!
