Meeting Thursday!

The September meeting of the Mid-Willamette Valley chapter of the Romance Writers of America will be held Thursday, September 1st, from 7-9 p.m. at the Salem, Oregon Central library.

We will have an optional critique group gathering from 6-7 p.m.  Feel free to bring a few pages of work you'd like to have critiqued, and we'll see how many excerpts we can fit in to the hour.  This is our first time trying this, so come with ideas and suggestions and we'll give it a whirl.

Our meeting speaker will be GENENE VALLEAU, who will share the techniques of storyboarding, spreadsheeting and pre-planning that she's using to craft a nine-book story arc.

BTW, it is okay to bring food and drink into the library, as long as we clean up afterward.  I'd advise against that garlic-and-limberger casserole you have your heart set on, but sandwiches, salads, etc., are fine, chocolate is always in good taste among romance writers, and I'll have a big thermos of hot water along if you want to bring tea/coffee/instant soup.

Our business meeting will include planning for next year's meetings and online workshops, an update on our website and banking improvements, and more (I don't actually have any more, but if you've got anything to discuss, feel free).

I hope to see you there!

Remember:  nonmembers may attend two meetings as guests for free before they must join our chapter and RWA National; former members may attend one meeting for free before re-joining.  So come on in and say hi.

Email if you'd like directions to the meeting place.
