Adding to our coffers…

For years, Writers Forum has relied on our Membership for Multi-media Presentations. From borrowing Shasta College’s Digital Projector (and later their Screen) to other members’ Audio Cables and Mobile HotSpots, we are thankful. But one problem was that Advanced Planning was needed. We could not at the drop of a hat (read that as a presenter canceling) substitute a packaged media program from Writers Digest or other online resources.


Scripps Howard Foundation  has awarded the Writers Forum a Volunteer Gift of over a thousand dollars for purchase of equipment that support will enhance Multi-Media presentations.

Writers Forum Remembers Sue Kowalewski


Sue Kowalewski, who died on November 25, 2016, at the age of 86, is remembered fondly by her friends at Writers Forum. Sue was a longtime member of Writers Forum whose cheerful smile and amiable personality added grace and cordiality to our monthly meetings. A talented writer, she shared her knowledge of the craft generously with fellow writers. Her wise and knowledgeable suggestions, always delivered in thoughtful terms, helped many of her fellow writers find their way to publication. Critique group meetings at her cozy, inviting home often included a tour of the flower garden that she tended with such care. We’ll remember Sue’s caring spirit and 100-watt smile, and we’ll recall walking with her through a bountiful garden with lovely flowers in bloom.
