Meeting reminder - Dec. 17

The Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 in the lower level of  The Oshkosh Public Library. 

Instead of critiques, we'll be doing our annual White Elephant gift exchange. Bring a wrapped gift from your home - something in new/excellent condition that you have no use for. The "gift" will serve as a writing prompt for the person who receives it, so make it interesting!

Donuts will be available but others are welcome to bring food to share as well. If you forget a gift, don't worry - we always have extras!
