owfi-meeting     I’m proud to say I’m a member of the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc. (OWFI) because WE ARE OWFI! That statement started last year after our conference and caught on.   

I attended the board meeting today as a delegate from the Enid Writers Club.  These meetings happen quarterly and it’s where the magic happens. Reports from each committee, votes on finances, and networking with like minds filled the afternoon. It takes an entire year to put together a conference and can be like a full time job for the executive committee.  

The conference provides editors and agents to help you on your journey to authorship – or just put together that memoir for your family.  I always learn from the teaching sessions, and have fun at the banquets and costume parties.  I enter the writing contest and sometimes I do well, but I always learn something. 

I began attending OWFI conferences about 5 or 6 years ago and I shook like a leaf when I walked in the door – all the amazing talent around me, I felt like I was in pre-school.  But I was welcomed.  Now, years later, I’m still in awe but I know these people on a first name basis. I’m a published author and I and have met people who have taught me to write, to publish, to edit, to market and mostly to enjoy my craft.  They inspire me. 

 Join us on the first weekend in May, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 1815 South Meridian, Oklahoma City, OK. As usual I can’t wait for the conference in May because #WEAREOWFI!
