Guests and Members Enjoy Friday Night Readings

If you didn’t make it to Fall Conference, you missed a wonderful assortment of information.

Marc Longbreak shared his creation of the Omaha Film Festival, his inspiration and experiences that shaped it along with some inspiring anecdotes for screen writers, authors and writing professionals from every genre.

Our own Victorine Lieske offered great ideas and information on her expertise of Self-Publishing and the beneficial changes of that avenue over the years.

Dr. Joyce Sasse, Psychiatric Doctor of Nursing Practice and avid reader, presented an interesting breakdown of character development relating to ways the brains of characters work– the way characters think in relation to psychology and physiology.

Fielding questions from attendees, our speaker’s panel proved informative and inspiring.

At this year’s Fall Conference, 43 pre-registered, five on-site attendees and we welcomed two new members –who you will meet visiting our NWG Yahoo Group.

During the Business Meeting, board members were elected and changes to the bylaws concerning membership status passed. Those attending the Fall Conference learned, during an announcement video for our 2014 Spring Conference, the fabulous speaker line-up.  Watch the NWG website for that same video—it’ll be up soon—as well as the dates and destination.   Our next Broadside will carry all the information.

We offer a huge THANK-YOU to Judy Rosenkotter for years of service as NWG Historian as she turned the reins to Mary Unger.

Friday Night Offers Opportunity for Fellowship, Networking and Talent

Thank you also goes out to the NWG board for organizing the Fall Conference, to the Good Samaritan Center for offering a fine place to meet and commune and to Judy and Harold Rosenkotter for all the arrangements and opening their lovely home for Post-Conference festivities. Our diverse and dedicated membership is one reason why the Nebraska Writers Guild continues to grow with the ever changing publishing world.

Here’s a comment pulled straight from our Face Book posts by President/Author Lisa Kovanda:
“On the countdown for this coming weekend for the Nebraska Writers Guild Fall Conference in Grand Island. Can’t wait to catch up with old friends, and meet some new ones. Great lectures on tap including psychological evaluation of fictional characters, self-publishing advice, and story analysis from a film festival exec. Hope to see you there!”
