February 2016

Post date: Feb 6, 2016 2:50:08 AM

This month's newsletter, written by Renee Liming:

Doesn't it feel great when we receive a handwritten love letter or note? A piece written from the heart, something that we can hold onto and cherish. Writing letters is a dying art, but it's still important to write notes to our spouses, parents, children and friends.

Start by writing a little note and put it in your spouse's or child's lunchbox. Write a note to a friend and let them know how much you value their friendship. Write your spouse a letter reminding them of all the reasons you fell in love with them, one reason for each year that you have been married.

Write your parents a letter and let them know what lessons you learned from them.

Writing Prompt: Don't wait to start writing. Start today by writing a note to someone. Let's bring back the dying art of letter writing.

COMING UP: February 9, 2016 - Join us as the WWCWG Board facilitates a "Share Ideas & Get Advice" meeting. This is your opportunity to learn about and participate in a discussion about a writer's life with its passions and problems. Board Members will field questions and offer thoughts and suggestions. Guild members will contribute from their experiences on this writing/publishing journey.

Join us for this interactive meeting that will inspire and encourage.


If you want to receive feedback on your work, come early (5:30 p.m.) to meet with others. Bring 6-8 copies of your short piece (300 words or so) for the group to read along as you share. You could bring what you’ve written in response to the prompt above, or something else you’re working on. It can be a portion of a book chapter, or a short article too.

See you at the February meeting!
