A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT
THE MARCH 28 MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELED
On Friday, March 13, Governor Mike Parson announced a state of emergency in Missouri. As of March 19, six cases of coronavirus have been reported in Greene County out of twenty-four the state. The U.S. government has declared a national state of emergency and is cautioning people to stay home, stating that these next four weeks are critical to the health of our nation
In light of these circumstances, the SWG Board of Directors will cancel the March 28 meeting of Springfield Writers’ Guild. We care about the health and welfare of all our writers. Following the Springfield mayor, the Missouri governor, and the CDC recommendations for social distancing, this is necessary.
As a writers’ group, we will endeavor to keep you informed of upcoming meetings, and send writing prompts, helps, and teasers during your ‘off time’ at home.
In the meantime, KEEP WRITING!
Hopefully, we’ll pick up again in April, and trust that the scare of this pandemic will be over by then. Members will receive the SWG newsletter in a few days, and other information to keep your writing skills honed!
Your SWG Board
