Come to our next meeting!
We had a great turnout at the November meeting, with more than 20 members and guests in attendance. The program was led by Rhonda Roberts. As always, it was great to be together again.
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY.
Our next meeting is more than a meeting. It is our Annual Christmas party, scheduled for December 12, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. (That’s the 2nd Monday this time, not the third.)
We’ll have the party at Daisy’s Lunchbox on the court square in Searcy. The cost is $15 per person; spouses and guests are welcome.
You’re also encouraged to bring something for a read-around. It can be any genre, with a maximum length of 2½ pages. Don’t put your name on it; entries will be rolled up and selected anonymously to be read aloud. We’ll all try to guess who wrote each entry.
If you live in Central Arkansas, we invite you to come visit us! Bring your pens, pencils, laptops, iPods, iPads, Smartphones, Touchpads, or whatever device you choose to use, (plus your imagination), and check us out!
With the exception of December, WCCW meets the third Monday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
2022 Writers Conference
OUR CONFERENCE WAS A GREAT SUCCESS! The 27th Annual White County Creative Writers Conference was held on September 3, 2022 in Searcy Arkansas.
The event featured three top-level speakers — among the best we’ve ever heard — to lead a total of six workshops on mastering the craft of writing.

About White County Creative Writers
Since our inception in 1995, the White County Creative Writers group has had but one goal: improving our craft. In this process, we have discovered that there are no rules! What challenges one member may come easy to another; what some have questions about, others furnish answers. That’s what makes this group work.
We have invited educators, authors, publishers and editors to speak to the group, formed critique groups, had members share learning experiences from other groups or workshops they have attended, and discussed what works and doesn’t work for each of us. Over the years, some of the beginners have become masters, and the students have become the teachers. Each year brings new members who come either with one simple question — “What can help make me a better writer?”— or experiences they are eager to share.
WCCW has undertaken such community projects as an annual poetry reading in celebration of National Poetry Day, writing contests for students in White County and an open challenge to groups and citizens of White County to raise funds for the public library.
WCCW also enjoys a close relationship with the staff at Harding University, and is included in many of their on-campus activities. This participation is very special to us, and we extend our thanks to them.
