Hybrid Southern Oregon: Meet & Greet
September 23, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Willamette Writers Southern Oregon Welcomes You Back!
September Meet & Greet
Welcome back, Southern Oregon Willamette Writers!
Join us for a free, hybrid in-person/virtual meet and greet beginning at 1:00 PM on Saturday, September 23 at the Josephine Community Library in Grants Pass.
Our local chapter is reestablishing itself, and writers of all ages and experience levels from all over Southern Oregon are encouraged to attend. As those who’ve participated in the past already know, our organization’s mission remains to help writers connect with their community, develop their craft, and advance their careers. If you are a local writer interested in these pursuits, we want to meet you.
Everyone will have the chance to introduce themselves and tell us a bit about your writing life. You can also learn more about what Willamette Writers has to offer and the opportunities to serve and be served by the organization. As our focus for September will be reestablishing and rebuilding our area chapter, there will be no speaker for this meeting.
However, Kate Ristau, executive director of Willamette Writers will be joining us along with a few other special guests from H.Q. and some previous Southern Oregon leadership. Along with some other changes, ALL Willamette Writers chapter meetings are now free and open to the public. So, whether you’ve participated for years or are hearing about the organization for the first time, we hope to see you (in person or virtually) on Saturday, September 23 at the Josephine Community Library in Grants Pass.
