If you enjoyed what you learned and have a minute, it would fantastic if you hopped over to http://writingonpoint.com/event/villains-and-antagonists-building-the-other-side-of-the-story/ and leave a rating. It would be helpful both for me and for writers who are curious about our events.

Cheers!

Year in Review

Category : Uncategorized

We at the PFWA headquarters want to get a big Thank You to all who supported us in our first year. We made great progress for our inaugural year, with three large initiatives granting resources and education to local writers of Greater Philadelphia. Last January we held a “National Novel EDITING Month” with six events, including two editing workshops  on “Crafting your Second Draft” and on the popular drafting software Scrivener. During the spring, we held our first annual Fan Fiction Initiative, which was comprised of eight write-ins and a lecture on “How Fan Fiction is Changing the World.” Our final large push was partnering with the local Philadelphia chapter of National Novel Writing Month in November, during which we aided the region by hosting over twenty events. Over the year, we provided writing resources and networking opportunities to over 200 people. What a great success!

In 2015 we will be adapting to the region’s needs and evolving our programming to fit the feedback we’ve received from local writers. We will shift focus to our networking goals, connecting more writers and building on and between the existing local writing groups and institutions. We will still continue offering our resource-filled newsletters, write-ins, and social mixers, so regularly check the website to stay in the loop

Thanks again to all who helped us in our first year! Without your support, the Philadelphia Free Writers Association would not have been the wonderful organization it has grown to be. We endeavor to continue to provide you with the resources you need to grow as writers.

Our Most Sincere Gratitude,
Jean and Jesi

Back from Hiatus

Category : Uncategorized

After a successful Fan Fiction Initiative in the spring, PFWA took the summer off to regroup and recharge before the fall. We’re looking forward to picking up where we left off and bringing more initiative-centric programming to the writers of the Philadelphia area.

Don’t forget to check out NaNoWriMo – PFWA supported events through the month of November.

Coming in January will be NaNoEdMo – the month long editing event to shape your draft into a solid, coherent second draft ready for both peers and publishers.

We’re looking for other writer groups already in Philly to add to our event calendar, and spread the word about the great opportunities they offer to writers in the area.

There will be a newsletter tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who is here with us as we begin to get ready for entering our second year of being part of the vibrant writer community in Philly.
