2016 Membership Dues – See Dekie Hicks to pay your $20. Make checks out to Rome Area Writers.
Reading Night – There is no prompt, but please bring a little piece of whatever you happen to be writing now. We would all like to hear your current project. There is a TEN minute time limit for each reader.
Website Content – We are taking suggestions for content to be added to the new website. Feel free to contribute.
This should be an exciting meeting and we are all looking forward to seeing you Thursday.
To start the new year off with a bang, we have upgraded the platform for the Rome Area Writers’ website. The new platform will allow our leadership to update content and make even more information available to members and non-members alike.
This will be an ongoing transition. Over the next few weeks you will see changes in the way the site looks, content availability, and even some possible uh-oh’s. If there was something that you miss terribly from the old site and want it back, give us a shout via the contact page. That can help us prioritize content that needs transitioning. If you have content that you would like added to the site, you can use the contact us page as well. Or you can bring your suggestion to the next meeting. We are looking for awesome news from our membership that we can help publicize. Things like book and story releases, signings, and other news.
We are trying our best to not have any issues with the transition, but the uh-oh’s are bound to happen. When things like typographical errors, bad links, or even flat-out wrong information occurs on the site, we want your help in identifying them. Please contact us so that we can address these issues as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to the new year with all of the possibilities that we can imagine. Since we are writers, boy-oh-boy, those possibilities are endless.
Happy writing, reading, and enjoying life.
