The Worth Of An Award-Winning Writers Association
What is the impact of a Writers Association on the life of an aspiring writer? What about established writers? Are they only for writers, or would such an organization also behoove those in related fields such as editors, publishers, or publicists? And readers? Would a Writers Association benefit readers, too?
For a writer, the benefits are somewhat obvious. I say 'somewhat' as the most relevant, for me, doesn't come immediately to everyone's mind. I'm referring to a place to belong and be among others who share your passion for the written word. A place to be encouraged, motivated, and gain self-confidence, as well as to learn and grow in the craft.
Paramount, are the networking rewards! Whether
writing, or marketing your works, creating relationships is one of the most important things you'll do. The Florida Writers
Association has been instrumental in helping me to 'create
relationships'. Other than going to my job every day, I'd spent
literally six years in relative seclusion following my husband's death.
Florida Writers' president, Dan Griffith, provided me with the means to
meet and connect with other writers simply because he took the time to write
to me when I signed the 'guest book' on their website. Now, I'm
honored to lead the Sarasota Chapter.
