Wednesday, June 20, 2012

The Tuesday, June 20, 2012 meeting of Bartlesville WordWeaver's was a busy one. We welcomed several visitors and new members on board.

Members discussed plans for the September 15, 2012 "Into the Book" Festival, a joint effort of the Bartlesville Public Library and WordWeavers.  It is geared to both readers and writers. The festival will celebrate the talent of many newly published authors in our area and provide a meet and greet for many of their fans. We reviewed a list of several published authors who have offered their names for consideration to speak.  The festival,which currently designed as a "come and go", is planned to begin at 10 a.m and run to 4 p.m with a lunch break. This will allow those with busy schedules to stop by during the day to, meet new area writers and get excited about Oklahoma's flourishing writing industry.  Of course, those who want to make a day of it are encouraged to do so.  There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance of the library.

WordWeaver members also reviewed and critiqued the first group of submissions for our anthology which will be published later this year and will be available as an e-book and print on demand.

If you are a thinking about becoming a writer, you already write and want help and support as you pursue your dream, or you just want to check us out, you are  invited to attend WordWeaver meetings which are held at the Bartlesville Public Library the third Tuesday every month.

Our next meeting is scheduled for July 17, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. We would love to see you there.
