YELLOW SPRINGS — The Yellow Springs creative strategy firm, The Bricks Agency, will host the next session of the Western Ohio Writers Association (WOWA) at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8 at the company’s headquarters complex, 888 Dayton Street. This writing workshop and critique session is open to all area writers for a $6 door fee that includes a one-month membership to the organization.
The Western Ohio Writers Association (WOWA) was founded in October 2008 to provide resources for writers in Southwest Ohio, Northeast Kentucky and Southwest Indiana. From monthly critique sessions and guest speaker presentations to special networking and educational events, WOWA offers support to writers of all genres, from hobbyist to professional.
Dayton area entrepreneur and business writer Gery Deer is the executive director of the Western Ohio Writers Association.
“Our organization offers honest critique, peer support and networking opportunities as well as real-life experience to help guide our writers toward whatever goal they’ve got in mind,” he said.
“We have a diverse group of writers including novelists, poets, journalists, screenwriters and copywriters,” Deer continued. “We’ve launched a few up-and-coming professionally published novelists over the years and all of them credit our group as a major factor in that success.”
According to Deer, the goal of WOWA is to offer “consistent educational and networking opportunities” for all members. They enjoy a regular schedule and professional, supportive meeting environment along with other membership perks, such as sponsor discounts and access to special events such as the Beatnik Café, a quarterly live public reading.
The Bricks Agency is a creative subsidiary of DMS ink. Western Ohio Writers Association is an educational outreach program DBA of GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd. designed to encourage the success of local writers in the art and business of writing.
