In the last month more than 100 local writers have signed up with the new Whidbey Writers Network (WWN). The group’s mission is to gather and disseminate information on resources that might be useful for writers living on Whidbey.
WWN’s next goal is the development of an automated, state-of-the-art website, to be funded by donation. All Whidbey writers will have access to this site and all are encouraged to make a donation (no amount is too small!) at https://www .gofundme.com/writersnetwork or by sending a check to Tanja Diamond/WNN, 7359 Maxwelton Rd., Clinton, WA 98236.
Currently, the WWN Meetup group at http://www.meetup.com/Writers-on-Whidbey-Island/ is the best source for the list of opportunities for local writers. Current activities include how to sell your books at farmer’s markets and how to join writers groups. Whidbey Authors Facebook page is also a good resource for announcements and invitations.
Anyone interested in adding their name to the email notification list should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-341-1860.
The check is in the mail. Good for you. Please include me in all your e-mail communications. The above website has information on writing and the request to nominate my latest book, Epiphany, with Kindle Scout at https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/113MLKNVIX6T
Nominations are open for another 14 days.
I have written three books, illustrating them myself. My Champion won a Golden Moonbeam Award and The Way Back won a silver medal with Reader’s Favorites. I have finished many oil paintings of life in Mexico, ten of which became covers on the Pacific Pearl Magazine. I don’t currently teach writing, but have given presentations in Mazatlan, Mexico and have attended many classes including several conferences in Puerto Villarta and San Miguel Allende, Mexico.
Networking is imperative. Donna, you are the best kind of supporter of the Arts.
