The EW Busy Program

The Eurobodalla Writers have a busy program each month.  There are the twice monthly daytime meetings, an evening meeting and a critiquing group.  For each of these there are writing projects on specific topics.  These topics can be seen on our Writing Resource page.

On top of that we are beginning the process toward our 20th Anniversary anthology whose theme is ‘Changes’.  We will be fundraising on-line via a crowd-sourcring website, followed by a submission period that closes on 31 January 2014.  The anthology will be published in a minimal release hardcopy and as an ebook.

With our wonderful representation on the winners podium at the PerfEX competition we have a host of talent.  I’m sure many will be reviewing the list of competitions to enter on our Competitions, Events and Opportunities page.

It is an exciting time to be a member.  Come and join the fun.  Details are at the right hand side of this blog or on the Contact Us page.
