HWG Meeting July 20, 2014

Clare reminded us that Richard Scarsbrook's last workshop in the current series is tomorrow, Monday, July 21st, at the Orangeville Public Library.

Clare also shared two books he feels are excellent writing aids. "Outlining Your Novel" by K.M. Weiland is the best he has ever read. "Structuring Your Novel" is the second from K.M. Weiland that he shared. Our Facebook page features K.M. Weiland's blog posts on a regular basis.

June told us about a writing contest from Chatelaine Magazine, a short life story contest due August 15th. For more information check
