39th Annual Summer Writing Contest: In the Judges' Hands

    We hope you got a ton of entries uploaded before the July 31 deadline. We appreciate every one.

    Entries have been assigned to judges for review. It will be a busy month getting ready for the awards celebration September 3.
    Put it on your calendar. Win or draw, you'll want to come celebrate the exciting world of words.

Where do you fit in?

     When it comes to that important core part of you -- your writing -- you'll find you fit right in at the Cisco Writers Club.

     We are friendly, energetic writers determined to improve and achieve. Our monthly meetings, knowledgeable speakers, newsletters, workshops, contests, and other features are great, but our greatest strength is our members. We believe you'll feel right at home immediately.

Next meeting: Awards Night! September 3

    September 3, at 7 p.m. -- this time in the banquet room of the Conrad Hilton Center, 309 Conrad Hilton Blvd. in Cisco -- we'll announce the winners in our 39th Annual Summer Writing Contest.

     You must see this. Over $1,500 will be pouring out to dynamic writers like YOU -- assuming you entered. You did, didn't you?

        In any case, come rub shoulders with some of the busiest, most exciting writers in the market today. Applaud, congratulate, celebrate, and get acquainted. And here's hoping you DID enter, and that some of that cool cash will pour into your hands.

     The celebration will include party foods and hors d'oeuvres. As always, we'll discuss writing and members' exciting activities, be it books, poetry, newswriting or other forms of expression.

     Remember that the Cisco Writers Club (CWC) meets the first Thursday of each month. Join us!

40th Anniversary Anthology Accepting Submissions

     At the August meeting, CWC voted to accept submissions until September 30, 2015, for possible inclusion in the Club’s 40th anniversary anthology. This compilation will be a beautiful repository for the polished works of aspiring or established writers.

     "There's a word limit of 2,500. Submissions should be family-friendly," says Kathy Spencer, who leads the anthology committee. "There's a nonrefundable submission fee of $10 to cover reading and editing costs."

     The title for the anthology will be announced soon. It is expected to release in November, 2015.

     More details and electronic submission can be accessed at our Anthology page.

                Welcome to our redesigned website.
