Summer Happenings at KRW

KRW has stayed busy this summer in June and July by exercising our creative muscles in different ways. First, we had our annual field trip on June 26 at Whet Your Palette! in Anchorage. We painted those fabulous flowers on canvas, seen in the photo on the top right.

Then in July, we set up our table at the Imaginarium Convention! It was another fun convention, with some of our members sitting on panels. We successfully reached out to some potential new members, and we're thrilled that so many people stopped by our table to learn about KRW. Also, thank you to those who donated to or sat at our table, pictured on the lower right.

August Meeting - In Person

KRW is returning strong in the second half of the year with in person meetings once more! We will have a writing sprint at the Starbucks inside the Hurstbourne Parkway Barnes & Noble on August 27th at 11am. No formal business meeting this time--we'll be writing for an hour and then playing a board game or two for those who'd like to catch up with other members. Bring your charged laptop or your favorite notebook!

September Meeting - Writers Retreat at the Farm

On September 17 (please note the change from our usual meeting date), we will be meeting at the scenic farm of member Charmaine Coombs. Come bask in the countryside while while writing amongst the rolling hills or inside Charmaine's beautiful home. Please bring a brown bag lunch. Her address will be provided in the Google Group to members only.
