*** HWG Members Announcement***
Are you a member of HWG and a little shy about reading? Or you don’t have time to attend meetings each week, but would like to get feedback on your writing? Well the Henderson Writer’s Group can help you with that. Request to join the Yahoo! Group Page. The only requirements - 1. You have to be a paid member of HWG 2. A Yahoo! email address is required. I know, I know you don’t want another email address to worry about. That’s OK you can direct the Yahoo! address to your primary email address with any provider and still receive updates, news and postings. Email addresses are free. The only time you would have to log into Yahoo! would be to upload a file to the site.
**The Yahoo! Group page is set to private, it is not available to every one on the internet, the only people who will see your postings are people who are members on the site. Your words will not be broadcast online. **
You have to be invited to join, if you are a member and would like to receive an invite send an email to Page Moderator Donald Riggio.
