WRITERS GROUPS

Postby LilliesCarol » Thu Oct 17, 2013 1:43 pm

Do you belong to a writer's group? This morning I attended our local group meeting. Our leader pulled out an envelope and then passed around a check for everyone to look at. None of us could believe our eyes. The check was from an attorney's office in the amount of $77,046. Yes, you read that correctly. It was donated by a long man who belonged years ago. Apparently he had no heirs and felt he wanted to encourage young writers. The money is designated to have a yearly local/state writers contest. You never know where your good is coming from, so join your local writer's group and have some fun.

:oops: :lol: AND JUST THINK I RED THISOvERTOFINDANYERRORS. Do you think I was still thinking about the money? I don't know what a long man is either. I guess I was supposed to say a man who belonged long ago? Oh well, you get the idea, as she slinked quietly into the sunset.

For those of you wondering, like Maia, the group has done this in the past on a limited yearly basis. As money ran dry, the practice was discontinued. We believe that is why the person left this money to the group. When we know exactly what the stipulations are according to the gifter's instructions, we will know more how to handle the money and proceed from there. However, we do know that it will be opened to the state of Wisconsin to encourage writers. If these preliminary instructions change and it should be open to the entire US I will let everyone know.

Dr G that was the best laugh I had in a long long time. If I weren't so dang old, I might be tempted to take a peak. :lol: :roll:
