2021 Meetings


Objectives:   To study methods of writing and research,
      To develop our talents as writers,
          To promote interest in writing, and
                       To encourage our fellow writers at all times

The Abilene Writers Guild  quietly celebrated its 52nd birthday in May 2021!  It was quiet only because Covid still had meeting places shut down.

We look forward to seeing you at our future meetings!  AWG desires to present interesting, informative, fun meetings where anyone can learn more about writing.   

While AWG  operates on a limited budget, our speakers receive a small honorarium and a one-year membership.  We also have specific monthly meeting dates and times for which speakers must be available.

                  Lessons My Students Taught Me!   

Cheryl Mann Bacon served 20 years as chair of the

Dept. of Journalism and Mass Communication at ACU.  Her teaching load included media writing, feature writing and public relations courses.

In retirement, she is enjoying freelance writing and consulting; she is a regular correspondent for Christian Chronicle and a consulting partner for the Siburt Institute for church ministry. 

She says she writes "just enough to pay for plane tickets," although the past year has not allowed for as many plane tickets as she'd like. She also reports spending a significant amount of time with her adult children, their families and her two 'perfect' granddaughters.

November 18, 2021, 7 PM.
