Freewriting is a method of creating writing in which the writer’s stream of consciousness is captured by pen, PC, or dictation, without reflecting to evaluate. It may result in sentences, sentence fragments, and single words. It is often used to begin a writing session to “print the pump” or to move a writer past a period of writer’s block.

A Message from the President
Between the Pages Writers Conference, set for June 2021 in Springfield, has been moved to 2022 due to potential COVID-19 restrictions. The BTP Board of Directors is comprised of the Springfield Writers’ Guild, Ozark Romance Writers, and Sleuth’s Ink Board of Directors. We have put together a virtual mini-conference to be held on June 19, 2021 with many of the same speakers. Find more information below and on the BTP website.
As always, be sure to check your email, newsletter, SWG website, Facebook pages, and other communication venues for further updates.
Write on, SWG. Write on!
DEAR AUTHORS AND READERS,
After much discussion, the Between the Pages board has come to the difficult decision to postpone the conference to 2022 out of a concern for public health and safety.
We’re going to level with you—we want this event to be beyond phenomenal and in an environment where attendees can focus on the programs and presentations, outside of the shadow of the pandemic. There is too much uncertainty at this point for us to confidently move forward with a 2021 conference date.
But we’re not going to leave you hanging! We’re putting together a free virtual program for Saturday, June 19, 2021 to whet your appetite for next year. The event is FREE, but you must sign up in order to get the Zoom link. Sign up here
Thank you to everyone for understanding and helping us do our part to protect public health and safety.
The Between the Pages Board
