New Look for Heartland Writers Website!
The HWG website has a fresh new look. The first version of the website became available in 1998 and was updated in in 2003.
The Guild wishes to thank Julie Wolpers of Web Current Designs for her expertise in successfully designing and hosting our website since the late 90's.
With advanced technology and ease of handling websites today, Julie recently suggested that this was a job that we could handle. Thus....the new look.
Features of the update include our contact information, a monthly meeting schedule, access to our monthly newsletter, and a News/Events page that will include Guild news and also individual member news.
Members should send news of their writing related events, projects, awards, and publications to the Guild email. This information will be placed on the News/Events page.
The Member Bio section offers members a way to connect with publishers and other writers via internet presence.
