St Petersburg FWA July meeting

The St Petersburg chapter of FWA will be meeting this Thursday (July 11) starting at 5:30 pm. Larry Kokko will again teach a class, this time the topics will be using micro soft Word. This powerful word processor has several tools to help a writer produce a mostly error free story.

Next he will touch on social media and the writer. He will cover blogging, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and author webpages.

So come out and join us at 5:30 at the St Petersburg Main Library located at 3745 9th Ave N in St Petersburg.

June meeting

Our next meeting will be on June 13th at the St Petersburg Main Library. We start gathering at 5:30 with a short time for socializing before the meeting.

June's speaker will be (drum roll please) me. I will be holding a class on how to perform a proper critique; what to look for and how to effectively get your suggestions across.

This will be an overview with some diving into more detailed items; a full class would take much more time than what we have available.

Due to my costs for preparing the handbook, I'm asking feedback on who is planning on attending, this is so I have enough material for everyone.

Due to time constraints, we will probably not have time to critique anyone's work during the meeting, but arrangements might be arranged to offer that at a later date.

I hope to see you all there.
