President’s News – May 2012
This month we’re looking at a fund-raising initiative where you can purchase Gold Coast Entertainment Books through the GCWA. Anyone who is interested please go to www.entertainmentbook.com.au/orderbooks/149259m or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Also please let me know if you have an interest in being part of, or assisting the Committee. With the upcoming Gold Coast Writers Festival and our Literary Luncheon we do need all hands on deck to help, even if you are able to only manage a minor involvement. Again, please email me, or Kathy at email@example.com.
Please also note our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Follow, like, friend, etc. Practice on us! That’s what the sites are there for.
If you have anything put up on the GCWA blog send to me or firstname.lastname@example.org for approval.
