A Tale of One City
It was the best of times; it was the best of times. If you missed this year’s MWSA Conference in Dayton, Ohio, you might want to start planning now to attend next year’s conference in Phoenix, AZ.
“The MWSA Conference was all that I could have hoped for when I first created this society,” said Founder Bill McDonald. “Lots of workshops for writers to increase and improve their skills, but more importantly, lots of real fellowship, laughs, good times, and networking. I can only image how much better these events will be over the years as people gain friendships, and new people come to mix into the group.”
Over the three days we spent together, we attended workshops, wrote assignments, discussed our projects, heard from those who have successfully navigated the industry, enjoyed meals together, gathered in the hallways, spent our Buckaroo Bucks at the auction, and celebrated the new crop of MWSA finalists and medal winners. Since we were in Dayton, we also had the opportunity to tour the Wright State University Library Archives and the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.
Start making plans now to attend MWSA Conference 2014, which will be held September 25 to 28, 2014. From the home page of our website, http://www.mwsadispatches.com/ use the dropdown titled Conferences and select 2014. Check early and often, so that you don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity next year.
