Image result for publish buttonThanks to Tom for passing this tip on to us: There's a Facebook page named "Calls for Submissions (Poetry, Fiction, Art)" that lists places that are accepting submissions. It's a closed group but it has over 35,000 members so they must not be too picky about who they accept!

Meeting reminder - Jan. 2nd

Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 2, in the lower level conference room of the Oshkosh Public Library. Hopefully, we'll hear some writing prompts generated by our gift exchange at our last meeting.

Also, be prepared to bring your personal writing goal for 2016!

Since the winter season is finally upon us, it's appropriate to remind members our meetings will take place as scheduled unless the Library closes for inclement weather. While it's rare for the Library to close, you can check if they're open by visiting the home page of their website: http://www.oshkoshpubliclibrary.org
