Write a 150 word piece in the horror or suspense genre for our roll call writing

First Ever Online EWC Meeting

             The “First Ever Online EWC Meeting”

Since we cannot meet in person this year, we are trying our program and roll call pieces a little differently. The programs will be through a link you can view on your computer.  We will be emailing our roll call writings to each other.  Let me know if you would still like to have a contest and we’ll also do that by email. We have a new prize in mind.

Roll Call — How did you spend the pandemic—Humorous or
otherwise

Once you have written your roll call piece, send it to everyone
in the club by email (if you have that capability). You can
“reply all” to the email that sent the newsletter and attach your
piece so all can see. The “reply all” command allows you to
use the email addresses of the entire club so you don’t have to
look them up.
