Topic: Write Your Heart Out at the HCRW PlotLuck Party !

Because several of our members are preparing for the RWA National Conference in Orlando in July, we are offering an opportunity to participate in a chapter write-in and  plotluck party. This is an opportunity to brainstorm, ask questions, or otherwise bounce ideas off your fellow writers. Please join us, because it’s also going to just be fun! The chapter is also providing lunch for those planning to attend. We will send a survey asking for a head-count very soon.

HCRW’S  OFF THE WALL FIRST-PAGE CONTEST

Simply bring the opening of your stunning, stirring, sweet, scary, or sexy Work in Progress. We’ll post the entries on the wall of our meeting room at the top of the meeting and count the votes at the end. You needn’t enter to vote. But you must attend to enter. Unpublished mss only. One entry per writer.
