WWB Meeting Report 06 January 2018

A New Year, but the continuation of the wonderful creativity, writing ability and performance of the group which sets it up be an exciting year for Writers Without Borders, made evident from the energy and family spirit in the room.

Welcoming several visitors, members then eagerly shared their thoughts, pleasures, and highlights from last year. It may also be a record number of members sharing their work which included feedback and constructive discussion as is the WWB way.

Proud authors Ahmed Magare and Ricky Dragon presented two new publications. Copies of these were happily signed for those eager to buy copies. Both are available on Amazon or from the Author.

The next meeting will be the WWB AGM and is for members only, so they can discuss several business matters, but there will be lots of opportunity to share more work and ideas in the coming months. There will also be a celebration later in the year for the 18th Anniversary of Writers Without Borders, details to follow.
