    Hello from Your Moderator and Founder, Sylvia Hubbard

    I’m going to say outright to new and old members: VISIT OUR NEW WEBSITE: www.motownwriters.com.

    Why? It’s new. I’ve added more resources on it. I’ve laid out member
    benefits. I’ve worked my butt to the ground and I would love for you to see the
    hard work I’ve done. (The last excuse was shallow and vain, but I had to throw
    something else in there.)

    Okay, now that I got that out the way, I’d love to invite you to our new
    Michigan Literary Network Radio show every Wednesday at: http://blogtalkradio.com/MichiganLiteraryNetwork.
    If you can’t come when the show is LIVE, then I’d love for you to download our
    podcasts.

    With tomorrow being Valentine’s Day, but also our second Second Saturday
    meeting at Barnes and Nobles from 10am to 12pm, I decided to still have a
    meeting, but we’ll be discussing Weaving Romance Around Suspense. Taking your
    story and bringing the tension between characters out on paper, while also
    giving great plots. Here Are the details

    WEAVING ROMANCE AROUND
    SUSPENSE

    presented by Motown Writers Network

    Loc: Cafe Inside of Barnes and Noble Wayne State on Cass
    and Warren 

    Date & Time : Feb 14, 2009 | 10am – 12pm

    Jones.

    If you missed her feature, check it out by clicking
    here
    and finding out Who
    isMonica Marie Jones?

    NETWORK UPDATES AND MORE 

    New Website! As we go into our 9th year
    at Motown Writers Network, we are hoping this will bring more blessings to
    com. (I need all the help I can get.)  To make things easier on me,
    I've gone and changed up the website YET AGAIN! 
    The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference
    Weekend
    - Going into it's 6th year, we would like you to be very
    much apart of it. (Yes YOU!!) With that, we're accepting proposals for
    workshops.
    In return for workshops, facilitators are given half page
    ads, one e-blast and a feature on the site during the conference year. We
    also will have other benefits for them (special gift bags with great coupons
    and discounts on services and books, etc.) If you are interested in
    educating and promoting with the literary community of Detroit, please send
    a workshop proposal along with handouts to:
    motownwriters@yahoo.com. Once
    your proposal is accepted, facilitators have forty-five days to turn in a
    print ready pdf or jpg of the half page ad. Volunteers are encouraged now in
    order to help us spread the word, hand out flyers and get advertisers and
    promotion sponsors. Please contact
    essenceofmotown@yahoo.com to
    volunteer for any positions.
    ADVERTISE – Motown Writers Network charges it's over 10,000 different
    members no fees to be apart and learn, network and connect. We do this out
    the love, but unfortunately love doesn't pay the bills. We encourage to help
    us out and advertise.

    Click here to advertise with Motown Writers Network.
    This year a member
    has actually stepped up and volunteered his services to help Motown Writers
    Network. Tony Adams along with his publicity firm Taboo Media is helping us
    handle the e-blasts and features on the site. Check out his page at:

    http://motownwriters.ning.com/profiles/members/?q=tony+adams
    . His team
    can also help in other areas of marketing and promotion as well outside of
    Motown Writers Network, so check out his page, click to his company's
    website and find out more information.
    And as always thank you all for your support. Love You all and keep
    reading and writing!!
    Your founder, author, blogger, mom and all around fun loving girl from
    Michigan
