The Write Brain Workshop
Member News/High Fives

The Northwest Ohio Writers Forum meets on the third Saturday of each month - except July, August and December - at various branches of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library.  All of our meetings are open to the public.  Topics can range from crafting dialogue to copyright law to freelance writing. Guest speakers will visit and offer their expertise.  Members and guests are encouraged to honk their own horns during our "High Five" segments.  Membership in the NWOWF is just $25 a year. For students with a valid ID, it's just $15 a year!

Be sure to check out the High Fives here on the web site too and meet us on our Facebook page as well!

October is the month we have our annual elections.

We will be electing  four offices:

President (You, too, can be Dictator for Now!)
Publicity Chair
