Have a Great Summer!

We are on our Summer break for meetings until September, when we will be back with a new amazing speaker. We are working on next year’s line up right now, and can’t wait to reveal it to you!

Just because we are not having meetings does not mean we won’t be out and about in the community. Find us at the Chuckanut Writer’s conference in June, and a few of us will be at the Steampunk Festival in July. And we expect local author-members will have their own events to invite everyone too–don’t forget to submit to the website!

Remember our membership year runs from September to September, so your renewal date may be coming up. But all memberships purchased over the summer count toward the next membership year, so there is nothing wrong with renewing or joining early!
