Boulder Media Women
Boulder Media Women (BMW) is a networking group for professional women who work with words and images -- primarily in the NONFICTION realm.
IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A SUPPORT GROUP FOR EVERY ASPIRING NOVELIST IN
COLORADO. WE ARE FOCUSED ON NONFICTION AND PROFESSIONAL POSITIONS IN THE MEDIA. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A "WRITING GROUP," BMW IS NOT IT.
BMW members include writers, editors, photographers, journalists, filmmakers, graphic artists, web designers, TV producers,
screenwriters, publishers, agents, PR specialists, and others who work
in the media business. Most members live in or near Boulder, Colorado.
All members are required to be residents of Colorado. BMW currently has
more than 400 members.
Boulder Media Women started in 1990 as a group of women writers who met
for coffee on Friday mornings, originally in Pour La France, which used
to be on the corner of Pearl and 10th and had cute little French-style
chairs that weren't too comfortable. We moved to Bookends Cafe, next to
the bookstore, where the chairs were much more relaxing, and where you
could buy your coffee ahead of time and then sit down.
So far we've had no president, no by-laws, no rules or regulations, no elections, no office, no staff, and no membership cards -- though we did consider t-shirts at one point. We do have an advisory board that meets very infrequently, to make decisions when they need to be made. Evelyn Kaye is the Grand Poobah Emeritus. Catherine Dold is List Mistress and Web Manager. Corinne McKay is the Potluck Coordinator. That's it.
