Springfield Writers’ Guild Elects 2017 Officers

Each October, the membership of Springfield Writers’ Guild elects new officers for the coming year from the slate the Nominating Committee submitted. According to the SWG Bylaws, officers may remain in office for two consecutive years. Yvonne Erwin, presiding President, was re-elected for a second term, as was Candy Simonson, Vice-President, and Michael Humphrey, Director-at-Large. John Cawlfield, having served two years as Treasurer moved to the Secretary position for 2017. Lynette Garrison was elected to the role of Treasurer.

    Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Thank you!


    • Yes, you could begin with WordPress, Blogspot, or any of the other free blogsites. Most are simple to use and you don’t need any technical knowledge. Get your stories out there. Provide good content people want to read!
