As I work toward the first meeting of the DeSoto County chapter of Mississippi Writers’ Guild- which is 6:30 PM on Wednesday, April 24 at the Hernando Public Library- I have put together some handouts for the meeting. I want to know what the reading/writing community of DeSoto County wants the MWG to address.
I know I would love a critique group to bounce ideas off to try to make my writing stronger. I also have heard from others who want workshops for various genres including memoir, short story, and poetry writing. Hosting book signings and local author events is another option. Sponsoring writing contests and having storytelling events has also been brought up.
What would you like to see our chapter do? Even if you can’t attend, even if you aren’t in the same state or country, what do you wish a local writers’ group would do for your community?
Please give me honest feedback. Any inappropriate responses will be deleted.
