January Meeting Minutes and News

On Tuesday, January 17th, the WordWeavers had their monthly meeting. Diana Purser, Denise Jarmola, Heather Davis, Rita Durrett, Barbara Shoff, Sybil Copeland, Sharlene Martin, Marilyn Boone, Saralyn Miller and Jennifer McMurrain were all present. Our warmest welcome to Saralyn, the newest WordWeaver member.

During our business hour we made some changes that everyone needs to be aware of. We will now meet at 6:30 pm on the third Tuesday of every month, instead of 7:00 pm. When a member has a full length book ready for critique, we will critique the entire manuscript. Kind of like a book club. The WordWeavers are sponsoring the YA Novel category at this year’s OWFI contest. The magazine article about the WordWeavers in the Bartlesville Magazine should be coming out in the Spring edition (1st weekend of March).

We spent the rest of the time discussing the rules regarding the two contests, OWFI and the Friends of the Library Bartlesville Creative Writing Contest. Lots of grey area, but still helpful to talk it out with others, basically follow the directions given in the newsletter and handout.

Our next meeting will be February 21st at the Bartlesville Public Library at 6:30 pm in Meeting Room B (downstairs, no food or drinks). This will be an OPEN meeting; in fact all our meetings are open unless stated otherwise. We will be critiquing and I will get those works to members as soon as possible. Hope to see you there. Happy Writing.
