President's Letter
LaDonna Harrison

Welcome to the 2015-16 Season of the Palm Springs Writers Guild!

As I settle into my new position on the Board of Directors for the Guild, for guidance I keep referring to the purpose of the Palm Springs Writers Guild.

From ARTICLE II: Purpose B (PSWG Articles of Incorporation):

“The specific purpose of this corporation is to encourage, develop and support aspiring and established Coachella Valley writers as they pursue their craft by offering educational programs, mentoring, critique groups, and fellowship.”

This statement calls into focus our group of nearly three-hundred members who are published authors, established writers as well as a large percentage of passionate aspiring writers.

If you are an "aspiring" writer, considering publication or have general interests in the field of writing (editor, agent, publisher, producer, etc.) please join us.

The Guild supports writers through educational programs, monthly speakers, critique groups and networking. Wouldn’t most writers, even introverted ones, welcome the opportunity to network with editors, agents and publishers and other writers? You might find just the connection you are looking for: a critique group, news about an open mic opportunity, a partner to exchange manuscripts with!

Let’s network!  Arrive early to our monthly meetings. Stay late. Talk to each other. You never know who you are sitting next to unless you say hello. Meet at least three new people each meeting. Say, “My name is___.” Shake hands. Ask “What are you working on?” Even ask, “What are you reading?”

To hone writing skills, The Palm Springs Writers Guild also encourages writers to glean the benefits from reading.

As a writer, I want to know what people are reading as well as what they are writing. Take full advantage of your time with us and peruse the abundance of resources in the Rancho Mirage Library.

Say "hi" to me too. I’ll be the excited one shaking hands with everyone, thinking of new ways for members get the support they  need!

*Season Kick-Off Meeting is Saturday, October 3rd, 2:00 - 4:00pm in the Rancho Mirage Library Community Room.

Siempre Adelante!

LaDonna
