AUGUST 2nd— GENRE ROUND TABLES @ 2:00 p.m.
Enjoy time spent with writers who aspire gravitate toward a particular genre in common with you! Gordon Sauer from Quarry Heights Writing Workshop will join us as a min-speaker and facilitator for our discussion. Unlike April’s genre meet-ups, we will meet right at our regular meeting place of Unity Church.
Show Me Writers: Masterclass
Please consider attending Osher Saturday Book Talk on August 1st with one of member/authors Steve Weinberg as he shares about his writing career.
Our writers’ Conference for 2015 will be held at Missouri University at the Student Center in partnership with Mizzou Publishing. Save the date for Saturday, November 7 th from 8:30 to 4:30 pm, and register now to attend one of the four Tracks: Fiction, Non-fiction, Poetry, or Playwriting/Screenwriting.
Registration can be completed by both paper and online methods.
We are using Eventbrite to complete the purchase as a “ticket.” If you choose this method be sure you also fill out the registration form as well. Be thinking about whether you want to take advantage of the mentorship with written critiques for a sample of your work and/or a one-on-one 30 minute visit with a mentor for a specific track.
Certificates and prize money will be awarded. We will have light snacks and the contributors will have the opportunity to read some of their work aloud (please keep selections to five minutes or less so everyone will have time to share if they choose to do so). And there will be time for mingling and book signing.
You are cordially invited to the Launch of our annual anthology. Sunday, June 7th at 2:00 pm Unity Center, 1600 W Broadway, Columbia MO
