Next Meetings 2/21, 3/21, 4/18

Next Lakeland Writers: 2/21, 3/21, 4/18

Come join us 6:00-7:30 pm @ Concord Coffee in Lakeland

1037 Florida Ave S #135, Lakeland, FL 33803

Need a writing prompt? Use the FWA Collections Prompt…It’s free for FWA members to submit to this annual contest and I think it is time for Lakeland Writers to be represented!

“Where Does Your Muse Live?”

Where Does Your Muse Live is the theme for the 2018 Florida Writers Association Collection,Volume 10 of sixty short pieces, written by FWA members, submitted electronically, published by FWA, and marketed across the nation through national booksellers as well as on our own website.

The Collection is published annually, sponsored by FWA’s Board of Directors and FWA’s Officialpublisher. Each year presents a new theme and Person of Renown. This year’s Person of Renown is Jim Pons, winner of the 2017 FWA Royal Palm Literary Awards Published Book of the Year with his book Hard Core Love.

Where Does Your Muse Live is all about the residency your Muse takes up in order to stimulate your writing. Is s/he residing in your mind? Does that Muse move around, show up in different places, different people, different characters? Tell us where and how your Muse shows up most often to spark your writing. Fiction, nonfiction, prose, and poetry are all acceptable.

Every entrant is allowed two submissions. Two submissions by a single author may consist of two stories, one story and one poem or two poems. This is a blind judging contest. Only contest administrators know the identity of the author until the winners are announced. Readers love interesting, inspiring, humorous, poignant, silly, sad, or amazing stories. All entrants will receive an entry acknowledgement by email.

Seven judges will score each submission independently, through a reading website. The
highest scoring sixty entries from all electronic submissions received between February 1st, 2017, and 11:59 PM, April 30th, 2018 (Eastern Standard Time) will be published. Only one entry per author is permitted in the sixty highest scoring group for publication.

Next Meeting 1/17…New Time/New Place

Hello Lakeland Writers!

With a new year comes new things! Our beloved bank building will be closing and we have found a new location.

Concord Coffee
1037 Florida Ave S, #135, Lakeland, Florida 33803 

Wednesday, January 17 @ 6:00-7:30pm

Concord Coffee is in the Dixieland Mall on South Florida between Hunter and Patterson in Lakeland. There is plenty of parking in the back. They have a beautiful facility with a small community room inside. They roast their own coffee in a space next door…and it’s delicious. They also serve light bites.

I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting! We will review our writing goals for the year as well as hold a critique session.

Need a writing prompt? A crazy weather event has brought a high wind. Suddenly, you are restored to your seventeen-year-old self and placed in front of your nemesis. The only difference is you have the wisdom of today. What happens next?
