Saturday Writers Special Weekend Events

For my local blog visitors, here are some special events from Saturday Writers that you won't want to miss.

Tonight, Friday, March 27 - If you are out and about tonight, stop by Main Street Books in St. Charles between 7 and 9 p.m. for a special Open Mic event. Saturday Writers President Lou Turner has got a star-studded line up which is sure to please, including members who will read from their published works as well as others who will be reading from their works in progress.

Country-western musician and songwriter Nick Nixon will be there strumming his guitar and singing. Main Street Books is located one block south and across from the Visitors Center at 307 South Main. Refreshments will be served and lots of fun is guaranteed!

NOTE: Under the timing is everything heading, Cari's championship soccer tournament game will be tonight at 7:15, so unless I can teleport myself to be two places at the same time, I won't be at the Open Mic event, but I'll be cheering for my writing friends while cheering Cari's soccer team. Go FZE JV Lions!

Saturday, March 28 - Tomorrow, Saturday, March 28, Teddy Norris, professor, poet and editor of the St. Charles Community College Mid Rivers Review, will be the featured speaker at Saturday Writers' regularly scheduled meeting (11 a.m. till 1 p.m.) at the St. Peters Community and Arts Center, 1035 St. Peters-Howell Road. Teddy will give an insider's view on what an editor looks for in submissions when she talks about "Creating Winning Manuscripts." Prior to Teddy's presentation, SW long-time member and former art teacher Jerrel Swingle will have his fifteen minutes of fame. And . . . the winner of the March Madness members'-only writing contest will be announced.

Also on March 28 - Saturday afternoon, right after the meeting, Saturday Writers member Bill Mueller will have a book signing at Main Street Books in St. Charles.

Hope to see you at one of these events.
