The purpose of the meeting was to let local writers know the benefits that are available to them by becoming members of the Spirit of the Hills Writers' Group. At the end of the evening I was happy to sign up. It's encouraging to discover people who want to champion the cause of local writers.
I have selected from the list of benefits to members those that interest me, personally. Spirit of the Hills will:
- find venues for book promotions in public places
- organize launches, signings, workshops
- create media alerts to announce launches, signings, promotions/events
- display their writers' work at various arts conferences
- work to increase the writer's public profile
