WHAT'S NEW FOR 2017?

WHAT'S NEW FOR 2017 AT ACFW-HOUSTON?

#1. Officers


Three of our officers are returning this year. Lisa Godfrees (pres), Elizabeth Pina (vice-pres), and Marc Schooley (treas). Suzi Ronning joins us as secretary (yay!).

[Nancy Kimball doesn't live within spitting distance anymore, though we hope she might make it down to see us occasionally. Thank you for your hard work, Nancy. We love you.]


#2. Meetings


If you're an author, you've likely made writing resolutions for 2017. (If you didn't, it's not too late!)

We're here to help you keep those resolutions. This year, our meetings will focus on learning and honing the craft of writing. Each meeting will focus on an aspect of craft (character or plot development or general story techniques).

We will be using the Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook by Donald Maass. You're encouraged to purchase a copy, but it is not required.


#3. Location


We will move our meeting location approximately 1 block - from UBC to my house. It will be easier to find us and more comfortable as well. :)

We've also changed our web location to www.acfwhouston.com. Make note!

#4. Dues


Dues haven't changed (tricked you!). If you're joining us this year as a member, please use the PayPal button in the right sidebar to provide us with $10. We use these dues to keep the chapter running.

Please join us for our first meeting of 2017 - January 14th. We really hope to see you there. :)
