We had a great presentation by Racine Zackula from the Wichita Public Library yesterday. If you missed it, we will soon have notes from that presentation on the website. She talked to us about the many, many resources available for everyone, especially writers.
Racine went over how to donate your author books to the library. You can donate two copies of your book to “Collection Development.” When you drop them off, provide your contact information. If approved for acceptance, the books will go (1) to the main library for circulation, and (1) to the branch library of your choice.
She also told us about the Short Story Dispensers, which is a wonderful way to introduce readers to your work (up to 8,000 words).
Dustin Boettcher also presented an informative program on poetry. We will soon have notes from that on the website as well.
The program/discussion for the May meeting was changed from what was previously agreed to: talking about first chapters. Now it will be about creating “Killer Titles.”
