This Thursday Evening – Join Us for Our Open Meeting

20150902_202925

Come on out this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. to meet with the Kenosha Writers’ Guild at our December open meeting.

Bring some of your writing to share (just one copy for you to read from) and listen to the works of other members.

Is one of your 2016 goals to complete a short story, or some chapters of a novel, or a series of poems? The KWG provides an audience for you, an audience that lets you know is a supportive way, what’s working in your piece and what questions it leaves them with.

See you Thursday at the Hedberg Library on the campus of Carthage College. 6:3- p.m. We’ll be on the lower level.

Obsessions and Influences – Submit Now for Friday’s Recording

Star Wars
The Kenosha Writers Guild is going into the studio to record its next audio program on Friday, December 18th, at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha.
In honor of the 18th being the release date for the new Star Wars movie, I thought we could do a show about obsessions and influences. If you have any work, fiction or non-fiction, that may fit this, please bring it. Of course, if you have something else or something holiday related, that is perfectly acceptable.
If you are interested in reading your work on the air, please see the following submission guidelines:
Submission Guidelines
– any form – prose, poetry, play, essay, script, etc.
– subject matter is not an issue, but language can be, so be mindful. Strong language is discouraged, so if you have a piece with rough language, edit it or submit an alternative.
– 1000 word count, give or take. You may submit more than one piece if the total doesn’t exceed 1000 words, but in order to get as many readers as possible, only one piece may be selected for performance on air. If only a few people submit, you may be able to read more, so feel free to bring extra.
– submissions should be e-mailed to Chris DeGuire at darthdeguire@yahoo.com preferably in Courier font.
The deadline for submissions will be Wednesday, December 16th. Selected readers will be notified by Thursday the 17th.

Any questions, please email Chris. Thanx
