On January 15, the CCWC’s Writers Night Out at Uno’s Chicago Grille on Route 132 in Hyannis began with a warm welcome from board president, Jennie Wiley who invited our members to join to two new committees to keep our organization vibrant and exciting.
The first is the Membership Committee, which is designed to improve our outreach to other area writers. The second is the Great Ideas Committee, whose mission is to stimulate new CCWC activities. Please join us to make the CCWC a stronger organization than ever before by contacting the office for meeting times and dates. Everyone is welcome — and so are your energies, creativity and suggestions.
The evening’s speaker was Janice Randall Rohlf, former editor-in-chief of Cape Cod View and now the Editorial and Content Director at Lighthouse Media Solutions, publisher of seven glossy lifestyle magazine for southern Massachusetts.
Based on her long experience as a regional lifestyle editor, Janice spoke about the value of writing for regional media for new writers, tips on how to query an editor and mistakes to avoid. Who knows? If you follow Janice’s advice you may soon find your name in print in one of her glossy magazines.
