Happy New Year!
2014 is sure to be a fantastic year for Three Rivers Romance Writers and our members. While many of us are huddled under a blanket, trying to keep warm as this winter hits our area with atypical temperature dips, I hope everyone will make an effort to be at our first-quarter meetings. Sheila and Sheri have worked hard to find us some amazing presenters and the information they’ll present will, undoubtedly, be worth venturing out in the cold.
For all the time/date details, visit our Meetings 2014 page. For now, here’s a bit about our upcoming meetings:
Join us as we discuss various topics (proposed by members) related to writing, editing, publishing, etc. If you have a suggested topic, please fill out the form on the About Us page or email us at: ThreeRiversRW@gmail.com.
