Charoltte Writers Annual Picnic

Paul has asked me for a count of people planning to attend the picnic. Please let him know by contacting his e-mail in the text.
Hi fellow authors.
  Judy Malbuisson Exec Director of the Charlotte Arts & Humanities Council has accepted our invitation to the Writers Picnic. This is good news, it is a chance for us to show the importance of the local writers contribution to the arts and humanities in our county.
I know you're busy with Thanksgiving preparations, but I would appreciate it if you could take the time to RSVP to and tell me how many will be in your party at the picnic.
We really want the picnic to be as successful or more so than the last one, and to help with that success we need to know how many people we are catering for. So once again please, let me know if you're going to be there.
Just in case you've deleted the invitation e-mail, the picnic is on Sunday December 8th from two o'clock until five at the Bayshore live Oaks Park on the north bank of the Peace River.
Looking forward to receiving your RSVP; we are all looking forward to meeting you.
Paul Holmes.

Charlotte Writers Annual Picnic

Mark your calendars this was a great event last year. Englewood Authors Members are Welcome

It's fun and it's free.
Date Sunday December 8th. Time 2:00 - 5:00 PM.

Location: Bayshore Live Oaks Park, Port Charlotte.

North Bank of the Peace River, West of route 41.

Who is invited? All those on the Charlotte Harbor Writers list, and their guests.

Cost: FREE! But we will accept small donations to offset the rental cost of the pavilion.

As we are providing Soft drinks, and other stuff we need an approximate head count.

So please RSVP to and tell me how many will be in your party.

The response to the question of including an open mic at the Charlotte Harbor Writer’s picnic has been overwhelmingly on the side of socializing, sharing ideas, and just getting to know our fellow writers.

Most of those who responded suggested that there are sufficient ‘Open Mics’ in the area, and our time together would be better spent listening to each other and not just all sitting there listening to one person.

I am pleased to tell you that Michael Hymans has kindly offered to bring his sound system, so we can allow people to make announcements regarding future events, group activities and other information that is useful and interesting to all of us. 

We have booked the same pavilion in Live Oaks Park, Port Charlotte, as you told us how much you enjoyed it and its central location.

Soft drinks, ice, plastic glasses and plates will be provided, you just need to bring some finger food to snack on while we chat and enjoy ourselves. Please remember no alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park.

Don't forget to bring your books; I am sure we will have a photograph of all the authors with their books, like last time.

So see you all then, don't forget to RSVP To
