Writers Organizations Unite for Networking Banquet

The light snowflakes gently falling added to the ambiance as Write-on Hoosiers hosted their 22nd annual banquet. This year’s theme was “Spotlight on Writing.” The banquet, attended by members of five writers’ organizations, was held recently at Lakes of the Four Seasons Country Club.

The room was full of great conversation, good food, many gifts, awards, and door prizes as 38 people gathered for the event. Writers had the opportunity to network and meet writers from other organizations. Writers Expressions, Magic Hour Writers, Northwest Indiana Poetry Society and Indiana Writers’ Consortium had members present. Each organization leader was given an opportunity to talk about their past accomplishments and future plans.

The evening ended with the “unveiling” of Write-on Hoosiers seventh issue of its literary magazine “Hoosier Horizon.”

A special message to WOH club members:

Thank you everyone for making the night a success, and always for the wonderfully generous gift you gave me.
