Date, Venue Set for St. Mary’s Chapter Kickoff

MWA member Nancy Smay has informed us that the launch event for the new St. Mary’s Chapter of the Maryland Writers Association has been officially scheduled. The event will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. in Meeting Room A of the Lexington Park Library 21677 FDR Blvd., in Lexington Park. Here’s the link to the location on Google Maps.

“If you have any interest in helping launch a new chapter, I’d love to meet you and discuss the potential for evolving this group into a supportive and useful environment for local writers,” writes Nancy.

Nancy invites interested writers and friends to e-mail her with questions, and encourages everyone to forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested. Nancy is also looking for volunteers to help with promoting the event.

Nancy is a local writer, military spouse and mother of tiny children, living in Callaway. Her goal for the chapter is to:

  • Provide a community for local writers, both social and professional
  • Foster interaction between local writers and residents (readers!)
  • Bring promotional opportunities to writers working to build a larger readership
  • Offer experienced speakers and workshops to help local writers grow our craft and learn about the changing business of the publishing industry

To start the chapter, Nancy needs about 10 interested members, some of whom might be willing to serve as officers, which hopefully wouldn’t entail too much time.

MWA president Paul Lagasse and other board members are planning to attend the event to answer questions about the organization and encourage people to participate in forming a chapter.

Hope to see you there!
