Writers' Forum Special Interest Group

Purpose: This is a peer group of genealogists, who meet to learn about writing and to share our writing with each other. Peggy Baldwin facilitates this group. If you would like more information about this group or have questions, please click here to contact the Facilitator.

Meetings: September through May, second Saturday of each month, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Genealogical Forum of Oregon’s multi-purpose area.

Book we are using: Roy Peter Clark’s Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer published by Little, Brown and Company in 2006. Each month we cover a tool. To see what tool we are covering at a particular meeting look at the assignments section of the agenda from the previous meeting. 

An email will be sent out of ORFORUM-L approximately a week before each meeting telling you which tool will be discussed at the next meeting.
