WRITING FOR THE WRITERS FORUM
– Your unpublished written work will be gently and positively examined with the purpose of finding ways to improve it. Works can include stories, poems, photo essays, or other formats with an outdoor theme. Participants should bring at least 12 copies of the work, and although the length of the works can vary, please keep the length below 1,200 words. It should not be your best work, but something you would like help with. Spectators are welcome. Need more information? Contact moderator Kenita Gibbins (email@example.com).
DIGITAL IMAGES FOR THE PHOTO CRITIQUE
– Entertaining and informative for all, this program looks at photographs with an eye to how they could be improved. Those who want their shots critiqued should bring 3 to 5 digital images on CDs or flash drives. The critique will be led by Fred Lord and Dan Bernskoetter.
PHOTOS FOR MEMBERS’ CHOICE CONTEST
– Conference participants are the judges for this one. Members may submit one or two matted prints, either color or black and white, and the photos may have been taken at any time since the beginning of photography. Altered/manipulated images are eligible. Each entry should be designated as Scenic, Flora, or Fauna. Print size is a maximum of 8 x 12 inches matted out to a maximum 12 x 16 inches, and entries should not be framed. You may put the title on the back, but please do not put your name anywhere on it. The organizers will keep track of what is whose. Questions? Contact Maryann Gaug (firstname.lastname@example.org – she wears several hats).
DONATIONS FOR THE AUCTION
– The RMOWP Auction is not only a lot of fun but also raises some necessary funds for the organization. We’ll be receiving donations from our corporate friends, but members’ donations are also needed. Bring books, craft and gift items, photo equipment, or whatever you find lying around the house, with the exception of spouses.
