Open Member Meeting – January 20, 2021

Dear Ohio Writers,

The past year has been an interesting time for all of us.

Historically, much of what we’ve done as an organization has been contingent upon our ability to meet in person. I confess that I’ve been waiting for the Coronavirus situation to blow over so that we can get back to business as usual.

It doesn’t appear that’s going to happen any time soon.

And perhaps this is a good opportunity to reassess who we are and what we’re doing.

To that end, I have scheduled an open meeting for all members for Wednesday evening, January 20th at 7pm ET. We will meet via Zoom.

If you would like to attend, you must RSVP. Simply send an email to to let us know you’d like a Zoom invitation.

We’ve always prided ourselves on the fact that we don’t do all of the fluff and nonsense of many writers’ groups. We provide the hard stuff that actually, truly helps professional writers and emerging authors reach their goals.

I want to hear about your needs as a writer in this time, and your ideas for how our organization can continue to fulfill its mission moving forward. This will be an open forum, and everyone who would like to speak on the topics at hand is invited to do so. If you’d prefer, you may also come simply to listen.

If you’d like to attend, please email us at right now.

I hope to see you on the 20th.

-Brad Pauquette
President, Ohio Writers’ Association
