March 19 KWA Meeting

Just a reminder of our regular meeting on March 19 at 1:30. We are back in the Sedgwick County Extension office, Sunflower Room, at 21st and Ridge. You can enter from either street and park on either side. Access is easy and there are plentiful restrooms.

From the answers to the survey our secretary Marcia sent out, most questions were about promotions: social media, blogging, webpages, podcasts. We’ll start our discussion with information about promotion. However, we will give you an opportunity to fill out the survey on paper at the meeting, so we can be sure to address the topics you want most.

Other subjects requested were creating characters, writing tips, how to find agents/publishers, archeology. Another question was how authors place information in a narrative. We also requested your areas of expertise, which are many and varied. If any of you want to give a short (10-15 minutes) talk about your career or hobby, just hold up your hand. If any members need more information, you can connect or we can go deeper in another meeting.

Good questions to consider: Why do you love stories/books/reading/writing? What you need from a story/book as readers? What writing has most inspired you? Do you know any speakers who would consider making a presentation? We have had a county attorney speak in the past, which sparked lots of ideas.

Please come; bring a friend.
