Goodbye, Hello, and Don’t Forget!

To our members who were not able to attend our Annual Party last night, I’d like to say farewell and thank you for allowing me to serve as the Chattanooga Writers’ Guild President this last year. I truly enjoyed serving with my fellow departing Board members – Helga Kidder, Chris Wood, Cynthia Young, and Natalie Kimbell – as well as Sherry Poff, who is entering her second year as Director. Thank you, ladies, for a smooth year.

And now with great pleasure I’d like to announce our new Board for the 2023-2024 year:
President: Ray Zimmerman
Vice President: Doug Daugherty
Treasurer: Michelle Rogers
Secretary: Alexandria Kelly
Directors: Sherry Poff, Laura Miller, Mark Anderson

Thank you all for volunteering your time to ensure the CWG can continue to have writing experts speak at our monthly meetings, provide our members with publishing opportunities, organize community events, and more! We look forward to another great year with you!

Before I hand over the social media reins to the new Board, I wanted to post some reminders so we can all be sure we are getting the most from our membership.

Book Gallery
If you’ve got books to sell, make sure they’re included in our book gallery! Once you’re logged into your account, it’s very simple to find the Publication Submission Form under “My Account.” Your book will go into our gallery and let anyone who visits our website easily find it.

Share your news!
Our members are invited to share their writing-related news with our community by completing a Member Post Submission form. Fill in all relevant information, include a photo or graphic, and tell us the day you’d like us to post. It’s that easy! Let everyone know about your latest publication, speaking engagement, open-mic event, etc. Or if you’re looking for someone to edit your novel or start a new writing group, we encourage you to post on our website, too.

Red Bubble
The CWG has all sorts of merchandise available at We’ve got t-shirts, mugs, pens, buttons, stickers, mouse pads, home decor, and more! Whether you’re buying a gift for a fellow writer or yourself, every purchase helps the CWG out a little. You can’t beat a gift that is both personalized AND helps out a small non-profit.

Have you searched around our website lately? We frequently update our Resources tab with new online resources, as well as new local writing groups. We’ll update our Writing Groups tab if they change days or locations, and occasionally update our We ❤️ Volunteers page when we have a need for member engagement, as well as our Fun & Games page, which has fun polls, comics, prompts, and more.

We’ve got several ways for you to keep up with all CWG events. One is to check our calendar at the beginning of each month (or if you want more details, go HERE.) You can also sign up for notifications by scrolling all the way down on our Home page and adding your email to the list. Whenever we make a post, you’ll be notified via email. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter/X, and Instagram, as well!
