You're on YouTube!

In March, about a half dozen members of the club met for a taped reading. Tom and Jim did the taping  and Tom uploaded the podcasts onto a YouTube channel he created for the club. 

This was a test run and we'd like to do more podcasts, perhaps in collaboration with the Oshkosh Poetry Club and/or other members of the public.

For a demonstration, Dixie's piece is here. Click on the side menu for other members' pieces.

Meeting Reminder

The Oshkosh Area Writers Club meets at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 21, in the lower level of the Oshkosh Public Library. We wil be joined by some UW-Oshkosh students in judging the city-wide Create-A-Book contest for students in grades 3 through 5. 

If time permits, we will discuss Tom''s Author Spotlight piece.
