Our December event will feature the second members' presentation. Anyone who wishes to talk for a maximum of 3 minutes about themselves and their interests will have the opportunity to do so. It is not intended as a performance or a showcase of your writing, but rather a chance for other members to get to know who you are and what you do. It gives you a chance to launch straight into the networking function which is at Weegie Wednesday's core.
There will be a limited number of slots. If you'd like one please contact Liz Small through direct message on Facebook.
We will also be holding a mini book and gift Tombola. You can also purchase books by contemporary writers - some of them best-sellers - at bargain prices.
We will be announcing further items soon. Watch this space...
