Get ready for some treats (no tricks) from Writers on the Avenue this October! Our monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10 (that’s right, 10/10) starting at 6:00 pm in the Student Center of Muscatine Community College. Join us to swap work, ask advice, give pointers, share inspiration, and just generally enjoy the creative spirit and bonhomie that always accompanies these meetings.

On Saturday, October 14, there’s scads of fun in store: Musser Public Library will be celebrating Indie Author Day, and that evening, the Second Saturday series will conclude with two of our favorite authors sharing their books and their writing advice at the WOTA table: historical novelist, poet, and writing coach Jodie Toohey (otherwise known as the Wordsy Woman), and fiction writer Tom McKay. Stop by to get your books signed!

And just take a look at the word challenge for this month: We decided to challenge ourselves with the biggest, Scrabble-winning-worthiest, gum-cracking words we could find. Just see how your imagination stretches with these beauties. Bring your work to the meeting, or post it here as a comment – we’d love to see what you come up with!

October’s tongue-twisters: hirsute, defenestrate, prevaricate, supercilious, anarchy, odiferous, contempt, geotherman, discombulated.

Enjoy, and happy writing!
