RAW Elects Officers

The Rome Area Writers membership is happy to announce a new slate of officers for 2018. They are excited to get work by bringing in visiting authors, getting members involved with writing events, and collaborating with the Rome Art Coterie.
  • Dekie Hicks, President
  • John Franclemont, Vice President
  • Jason Lowrey, Secretary
  • Emily Farmer, Treasurer

We want to thank Paul Moses and Merrill Davis, who served as president and secretary during 2017, for their leadership and continued support. Everyone is dedicated to our group’s mission, “Writers helping writers,” and we are happy to hear any ideas for events, exercises, or community involvement you may have.

RAW meets regularly on the second Thursday of each month from 6:00-8:00PM at the Rome/Floyd Library. Come join us.
