Next weekend, on September 16th, we have both SoCon in Bixby and Pride in Enid. At SoCon, we have our Nontraditional Characters panel.
On September 23rd, LibCon is at Hardesty Library. Each of our publishers have our own tables there.

We are currently in discussions with Gardner's and 1907 to do book signings around the holiday season.

No new updates.

d. Newsletter Committee (Shannon)
The next deadline is October 6th; look ahead to that, and send articles to The Editor of the Season is JayCee; Donna will write the article.

e. Outreach Committee (Adrean)
Adrean has made contact with our adopted teacher! So far she seems to have a lot of what she needs, but has said that notebook paper (preferably college ruled), pencils, whiteboard markers, and boxes of tissues are always appreciated. We are uncertain about the ability to drop off these supplies ourselves, but can use Katy as a go-between.

f. OWFI Committee (Shannon)
The next OWFI board meeting will be this Sunday at 1 pm.
The next Slack chat will be with Ben Montgomery on October 12th. The topic is, "Sounding the Gong: How to Craft an Ending That Reverbrates." Attendance will cost $14, payable through the website.
Reminder that OWFI 2018's theme for our costumes and baskets is superheroes! If you get supplies for the basket, be sure to bring them to Lord Mistress of the Baskets, Z!
Another reminder that OWFI collects its dues in October, and it's cheaper to join as an affiliate than a member-at-large! We'll start collecting registration as a group in September.
If you're interested in volunteering to help at the registration table at next year's conference, let CJ know!
