May 25, 2023 - Bring something you have written to share with the group.  Three-minute time limit, so no dissertations or novellas!  Hearing our members read what they have written is always such fun and a great encouragement to the rest of us! Depending on how many want to read, you may get to read two things, so come prepared.


June 22, 2023, - AWG's own Darla McLeod will present our program at 7 pm.  She will discuss "How to Develop Your Social Media Presence" so you can sell your writing.  What's the right approach? She has lots of experience and you will not be bored!!​​

July 27, 2023 - Dr. Lester Langley, retired Professor of History, will present our program entitled "Everyone His or Her Own Historian."  He'll explain the historian as storyteller and analyst, participant and observer.  If you consider yourself one of those --- or just want to be! --- join us in July for this program.

August 24, 2023 - Seth Pace will present the program and hopefully some of his students who have entered our past contests will join him.  How does he get them to participate?  Is that even a problem?  Surely he will allow us to ask questions; after all, he is a creative writing teacher, among other things!

September 28, 2023 - Stephanie Ellison, children's book author and popular speaker will share her story with us. Writers should always have stories to tell!

October 26, 2023 - Alice Specht, retired HSU dean of libraries, volunteers at the Grace Museum and is a member of the Taylor County Historical Commission.  She has published historical articles about pioneers in Taylor County's Mulberry Canyon.  She will share with us about Edna Gertrude Beasley.  It's quite a story; come enjoy it!

November 16, 2023 - Members will once again share what they have written!
