February meeting

Join us on Tuesday, February 20 for the next WOTA meeting! Bring a pen, bring a friend, and bring work you’d like to share. We’re adding some new activities to the usual meeting format in hopes of sparking more inspiration and fueling some fresh ideas.

The business meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Center lounge of Muscatine Community College. Items on this month’s agenda include the poetry contest, our upcoming anthology, and a possible panel on publication. All are welcome, and all dues-paying WOTA members have a vote. Your input is appreciated, especially if you responded to the survey with ideas about more activities that you’d like to see WOTA undertake.

The writing portion of the evening will kick off at 6:00. This month’s meeting will include an on-the-spot exercise, so bring your favorite composition tools—laptop, tablet, good old pen and paper. We will write and share.

We will also set up an ongoing rotation for critiques of longer works and topics for future writing prompts or activities. It’s going to be an exciting shakeup of the usual, and I can’t wait to see what rattles free. See you there!
