May 2010 Meeting Minutes

Tuesday, May 18th, WordWeavers held their monthly meeting. Marilyn Boone, Denise Jarmole, Sylvia Cranmer, Barbara Shoff, and Jennifer McMurrain were all in attendance.

We talked about Point of View and Jennifer McMurrain gave a workshop on the WordWeavers blog (which everyone is invited to write on) and Facebook.

The OWFI workshops were also discussed. Denise Jarmola, Jennifer McMurrain, Diana Purser, and Rita Durrett all attended. You can find some of the notes posted here on the blog, with more to come. Some of the main points taken away from the conference were: know your genre, know your "publishing" word count (250 x # of pages), get your name out there before you're actually published (blogs, facebook, twitter, ect.), submit to both publishers and agents, and WRITE EVERY DAY!

Officer elections were held: President - Jennifer McMurrain, Vice President - Marilyn Boone, Treasure - Diana Purser.

There is a scheduling confict with the meeting room. As of right now we will meet THURSDAY, JUNE 17TH at 7pm in Meeting Room B (same room as usual).
