For adults, the CWC Book Look will offer a wide array of genres – including romance, paranormal, horror, science fiction, nonfiction, autobiography, local history, inspirational, and others—to fulfill the reading interests of everyone.
“Our goal is our motto, ‘helping writers where they are,’” said Amber Draeger, CWC Programs Coordinator. “Too often in rural Texas, we lack the resources and the support system that is found in the metroplex, so we want to be a literary hub for this area of Texas for all the writers that are willing to come and join us. Our goal is to help as many people get to their dreams as possible.”
Come meet the authors, take a photo, snag signed copies, win prizes, and help the CWC celebrate this first annual event.
About Cisco Writers Club
The Cisco Writers Club was established in February 1975 by some twenty determined, industrious writers. For some, writing earned their daily bread. For others, it was a hobby and diversion. All wanted to learn, progress, and share the journey. Cisco Writers Club is a support group for writers. The mission of the Cisco Writers Club is to encourage the development and improvement of its members through educational and informational programs, workshops, seminars and contests; to stimulate the systematic study of writing and research methods; to offer constructive criticism of individual members’ writings. Members from the Central Texas area gather the first Thursday night of each month for meetings, workshops, speakers, writing challenges, and mutual encouragement.
