Celebrating forty years of helping writers where they are
CWC's festive 40th anniversary and 39th Annual Summer Writing Contest awards took place September 3 in the Conrad Hilton Center banquet room in Cisco.
See competition results on our Contest page.
A festive Tuscan-themed celebration included delicious party foods and hors d'oeuvres. After members, writers and guests discussed their writing achievements, summer activities and the Club's 40 years, winners were announced. Those present received a certificate of achievement and a check; others will be mailed.
The exception was the Children Write! category, which issues non-cash prizes. This year winners receive a VIP helicopter flight, followed by pizza in the hangar - for all Children Write! contestants!
Remember that the Cisco Writers Club (CWC) meets the first Thursday of each month. That will be the first day of October. Join us!
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.
