As part of a community I’ve developed for writers and other creatives, I’ve added a message board and chat room to my website.
The message board has sections of interest to writers and areas for general discussion. Users may request additional topics that might be of interest to them.
A regular writer’s meeting will take place every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. EST. We can also arrange other meeting times. The room will be available for informal chat at any time.
I hope to have scheduled presentations and readings in the same chat room— by writers, editors, designers, advocates, and others. It would be a wonderful opportunity for people to promote what they do and to help others. Suggestions for presentation topics are always welcome.
Please note that presentations may not take place without approval, and presentations are always free. Presenters do not receive payment from anyone. I will, however, promote the event and provide moderation for the event. Presenters are encouraged to invite others.
You can bookmark the forum and chat room links:
Or you can always bookmark my site for access. The links are under my Community menu.
We may eventually need additional moderators, but we’ll see how it goes!
Please share this information and these links with people you’d like to join you, or people you think might be interested in the promotional presentation opportunity.
Lastly, join my street team, and never miss a thing! It’s going to be exciting and mutually rewarding, I promise. Read all about it here!
