patrons

Creative Quills is a writing group that began in 2015 at the El Reno Carnegie Library.  We have published four anthologies, and most of our writers now have published novels.  We have over 45 members, and at least half of them now have books, some of them as many as 3 or 4.  We do events such as festivals, readings and open mic nights, county fairs, museums, libraries, and varied other events.  We are planning a conference for 2019, intended to draw novice and/or memoir writers into enjoying the journey of writing and publishing.  In this group, we make it happen and have fun doing it!  Led by adjunct writing instructor and publishing expert Andrea Foster who has been in the business for over forty years, Creative Quills seeks to expand horizons and to help folks make their dreams come true while building writing, publishing, and marketing skills and confidence. thebooklady.info creativequills.com okwriters.com

We have approximately 25-50 on again off-again authors in our Oklahoma "family," and we would like to enlarge that to 100, including online folks!  Right now, we are looking for 25 new people to join us.  Once we have a good group going, we'll be able to add webinars and other online chats, podcasts, and classes. Come join us for the fun on the journey, as we fire up our creative juices!
