Abilene Writers Guild


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

Guest speaker - Diana Hartmann.

Unlike most women, having your roots show is a compliment to Diana Hartmann. A former Accountant now writer, the West Texas native views what others might think of as trash in their past as stars leading her to share her story through the written word and messages full of hope and healing. 

Dianna Hartman will present our October program, speaking about how conferences can help you in your writing as well as in getting published.

Bring a snack or other food to share with everyone.  AWG will furnish paper goods, utensils and drinks.

Members will read some of their writing and visitors will be welcome to share some, too!  Readings will be limited to three (3) minutes each. Programs like this have proved very interesting in the past because there is usually a wide variety of genres:  poetry, flash fiction, short stories, a chapter of a book, etc.  Come join the fun! 

November 16, 2017, at 7 pm ---  Potluck!

Upcoming Meetings in 2017

The Abilene Writers Guild began its 48th year on June 1, 2016. If you would like to recommend someone as a speaker, now is the time! Contact Program Chair Barbara Rollins, barbara.rollins@gmail.com, with your specific suggestions.

Remember, we work on a limited budget! Our speakers receive a small honorarium and a one-year membership.  We also have a specific meeting date and time for which speakers must be available.

Barbara would also like to hear from you if you would be interested in presenting a program, or if you have a writing-related subject you would like to learn more about.
