If the timing of this meeting doesn't work for you, please let me know what days/times would work best for future gatherings.  
Let's get started with a summer session and see how it goes.  We may want to extend or we may choose a format that is occasional or seasonal.
 
Proposed Objective:
PCGS Genealogy Writers Group is an opportunity for genealogy authors to come together and share their projects in progress if they want to, get great ideas and support from other PCGS members, and discuss topics of interest.  This is an accountability group in which we help each other move forward with our writing goals.  Sample topic ideas include:
  • Finding your ancestors' compelling narrative
  • Using timelines in your written work
  • Visual presentation of time and geography 
  • Writing about difficult topics
  • Stuck in research?  Strategies to get writing
  • Family Version / Genealogy Version
