Greetings from the President –


Yvonne Erwin

Dear Guild:
As you know, the Heritage Cafeteria closed on Sunday, August 21, 2016. 
Since the closure, the SWG Board has been discussing the best alternatives for SWG going forward. We want to make it as easy as possible for our members to adjust until we find a permanent home. We can’t look back at the Heritage – that chapter is closed. We must look ahead, and with looking ahead, we need to consider making some changes to allow the Springfield Writers’ Guild to continue as a viable group. 
SWG will continue to have regular meetings. We have venues booked for the next several months. Realistically, not every location is going to be 100% ideal, and the options are limited. However, the Board has investigated numerous locations, to include the Library System, Evangel College, and many others. We will provide the group with the entire list in a group email to be sent out at a later date. 
Our September 24th meeting will be held at McAlister’s Deli, located at 1711 W. Battlefield, corner of Battlefield and Kansas Expressway. Our meeting format will not change at this time. We will begin with our mentor hour, break for lunch, and come back at 1:00 pm for our business meeting and speaker. 
We will continue to keep you updated through our SWG email, our social media pages, our newsletter, and this website, on locations as we move forward. 
We appreciate your patience throughout this ordeal.

    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!
