I hope your new year is progressing well.
We're already getting excited about our first D6 meeting of the year (as always, set on the 4th Saturday of the month beginning at 1:30 PM).
Julie Sellers, D1, published author, who writes poetry & prose, will be our guest speaker. I can't wait to learn from Julie how she created the title of her presentation: "The Two I's of Writing: Inspiration and Intentionality."
She will share with us her tips on looking for ideas, techniques she uses to be intentional about writing, and challenge us to participate in a short writing activity.
See two attachments: Julie's photo and her bio with contact information.
If you're a current KACD6 member, you'll automatically receive a link to this presentation. If you'd like to attend the zoom meeting as a guest, just contact me. The meeting is free and open to the public.
