Today is the deadline for entries for the annual President's Contest.
Sponsor and chapter contests remain open. Be sure to check the categories and enter!
There's still time to get a pre-conference critique by Catherine Rankovic! Up to 25 pages of your fiction, non-fiction or poetry for $50. See the conference registration form for payment information and address.
Today is also the deadline for notifying Wendy Drew of Rose's Bookhouse if you intend to sell books in the book room during the conference so they can be added to the inventory. Wendy should be notified of your intentions even if you're bringing your own books so there will be enough space allowed for everyone who wishes to participate. Wendy's contact information is email@example.com
We still need LOTS of photos of writers with their 2010 publications, writing groups in action and chapter activity shots to include in the "Show-Me Spotlight." Send picture files with descriptions to Debbie Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 20th!
Be sure to complete your registration form entirely before hitting the "send" button and paying by PayPal or before sending it in by mail. Registrar Tricia Sanders is following up with those whose registration requires more information whenever possible, but since pitches and master classes are "first come-first serve," if your information is incomplete, you might miss out!
The Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel is offering our conference participants a special rate of $89 per night for the conference, but reservations must be completed by March 8th. Reservations can be made at http://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/missouriwritersguild.
And finally, conference pre-registration is open until March 31st. Visit www.missouriwritersguild.org to register online or download a mail-in registration form.
