April Meeting of Enid Writers Club

The monthly meeting of the Enid Writers Club will be held on Thursday April 4, 2019, 6:30 pm, the Conference Room at NWOSU, Randolph and 30th street.  The Enid Writers Club is open to all who aspire to improve their writing and join with like minds.  All skill levels and age groups are welcome.  This month’s program will be to read the completed piece that you have been working on all year. If you completed a novel, just read the synopsis. We will turn in our manuscript/synopsis, by email, to be placed in the annual year book. We will also be voting on next year’s officers and discussing the upcoming May banquet. April is poetry month.  Bring an original poem, if you have one, and read it to the group. Join us!
