Worn out from last weekend’s OWFI conference, I spent the week recovering. I’ve made so many friends over the last few years as a member of OWFI and rubbed up against so much talent, I am often in awe.
The Enid Writers Club is the oldest writing club in Oklahoma established in 1923. We are a group of approximately twenty members and seven of them participated in the OWFI conference this year. Two brought home awards for their writing.
We volunteered for several jobs at the conference and perhaps drank a little wine.
Some of us were Ghostbusters.
We had books for sale in the bookstore and shepherded agents from New York. We raffled off centerpieces!
In other words, our club worked hard – as did all the others. We then came home to the EWC annual awards banquet and end of the year festivities.
Next year will be the 50th anniversary of OWFI. I know it will be a gala event. I look forward to the conference again. Maybe I need a new dress for the Saturday evening festivities. See you next year!
