North Florida Writers’ Minutes

December 9, 2006

 

 

Three new members attended this Saturday's meeting of NFW. Joyce Davidson suggested having a group party at her house in Fleming Island. A vote approved this and using this party as our January meeting, which will be held the 3rd Saturday of January at her house. Briefly discussed was the issue of new officers for the 2007 year. Carrol Wolverton suggested the current slate of officers be continued for another year. Joyce said that more of the existing officers needed to be present for a vote, so the issue was moved to the January meeting. Richard Levine discussed one of his projects with Parabolic Pictures, which is proposing a short story contest with the intent of making the selected short story into a short movie. A vote was taken and approved to link this contest to NFW as a way of giving both groups added exposure. There will be a fee to enter but no cost to NFW. Also discussed was our impending NE Florida poetry anthology, and it was decided to continue this discussion at the January meeting. Critiques followed.
