A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Greeting Springfield Writers’ Guild members! With a new year upon us, Springfield Writers’ Guild is set to begin its 77th year with a full slate of events and activities.
Our monthly meetings will be packed with opportunities to share your current writing projects during Mentor Hour and the following Genre Group sessions. We are putting together a list of dynamic speakers who will share their experience on a variety of literary topics. You’ll also have a chance to win awards and cash prizes in our annual spring, summer, and fall writing contests. I also encourage you to consider attending the upcoming Between-the-Pages Writers Con at DoubleTree by Hilton in Springfield in June.
Looking forward to a great 2020.
President Chris Keller
