Wicklow Writers Group
I did suggest that we all put some ideas forward about how we could increase our membership and structure our meetings in the following semester.
Guess what? I haven’t had any response. There’s hope yet because we have a few weeks. Go back to the link I sent you for the guidelines on the group WhatsApp. If you cannot find it, let me know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send it to you.
I listed some guidelines in the article, but you don’t necessarily have to use these if you have other ideas – excellent! The idea is that I will put your points into a condensed format so we can all discuss these at our next meeting. From there, we’ll set our sails to the wind.
As part of my contribution, only part, mind you, I want to send a mail to the library about the use of a meeting room once every three months. The meeting will be an event of interest to all Wicklow readers/writers. These events could be used to drive membership.
Do I have your approval to send the mail?
Anna and I just completed a six-session course on creative writing by the acclaimed Irish author, Dave Butler. It was a stimulating and informative time – we laughed a fair amount too. Dave will be giving a similar course in Bray in September and if any of you would like to attend, let me know; I will let you have contact details.
I’m looking forward to hearing from all of you.
