Meeting reminder - Dec. 16 Holiday Party

The Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16 in the lower level conference room at the Oshkosh Public Library. This is our annual holiday party so we won't be doing writing critiques. 

Please bring a wrapped White Elephant gift (something in new/good condition that you already own but never use). The White Elephant gift will be used as a writing prompt for the receiver, if that helps you decide what to bring.

Donuts will be provided but others are welcome to bring a snack to share are well. We'll also like to taking a group photo on the second floor where there are Christmas trees for a back-drop.

Meeting reminder - Dec. 2

Yikes! My email contact list has disappeared. This would have been my email, had I been able to send it:

Just a reminder that the Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, in the lower level conference room of the Oshkosh Public Library.

Our annual holiday party will be held at the following meeting, Dec. 16. Please bring a wrapped gift (something you already own but never use) for our white elephant gift exchange. The person who receives your gift will use it as the basis of a writing prompt, if that helps you decide what to bring.

Lastly, the Thank Goodness NaNoWriMo is Over party will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30 in the First Floor Reading Room of the Oshkosh Public Library. Finished or not, enjoy some snacks and share your stories.
