WRITERS GUILD: The Western Wisconsin Christian Writers Guild invites writers to join them at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Bethesda Lutheran Brethren Church, 123 W. Hamilton Ave., for a new year of connecting and communicating with new projects and plans.

How do we set new goals? What is reasonable? What is pie in the sky inconceivable? Without a vision, our writing falters, so this is the month to brainstorm, share our ideas and make a plan.

Want accountability? We can do that. Want to work in secret? That also is possible. Just put your thinking caps on, bring pen or pencil and start your writing year with clear direction.

The WWCWG meets from 7 to 9 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month from September to May at the church. The group offers Christian fellowship, practical advice, networking and training opportunities for writers.

For more information about membership and fees, go to wwcwg.com, contact Sheila Wilkinson at 715-839-1207 or send an email to wwcwg.info@gmail.com.
