Each month on the second Tuesday, the CWG holds a Monthly Meeting. These are typically two hours long beginning at 7 PM and include time both for socializing and a Program. Our programs are always free and open to the public, and feature individuals who have expertise in their field. Presenters can include authors, editors, journalists, poets, educators, publishers, and performers. Programs cover a wide variety of topics, from how to successfully self-publish, to how to generate ideas and break out of writer’s block, to how to edit your own writing.
Our Workshops fall under a different, but similar category. These are usually two-hour to all-day events occuring on Saturdays, and cost a small fee to attend. They are more intensive, with presenters leaving time for attendees to practice the skills being taught and share what they’ve written.
Our Workshops and Programs are organized by a Program Director. At the beginning of a term, the Board discusses the types of Programs and Workshops they feel would be most beneficial to the membership in the coming year and generates ideas for the Program Director. The Program Director then reaches out to the literary community and sets up presentations.
A good Program Director is organized, creative, and comfortable reaching out to potential presenters. A bonus, but not requirement, is to be well-connected in the literary world. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Calvin Beam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
