Welcome to our new members! After many years, Betty Lowry is stepping down from writing our monthly newsletters, and I will be taking over the role. Although she is still a valuable member of the BAC, her dedication to the newsletter will be very missed. To tell you a little about myself, I am a short story writer and writing editor and tutor, living in Lynnfield, MA with my family. I've just started my second year on the Reading Committee of the Julia Ward Howe Awards, and am a member of the Board of the BAC in charge of marketing. I will do my best to keep the high level of enthusiasm and eye for detail that Betty maintained for so long in our monthly newsletters.
Since some members have not renewed their BAC dues for 2017 yet, I wanted to point out that we now have the option to pay online, directly through the website at http://bostonauthorsclub.org/renew/. As a reminder, membership dues are $50 per year for individuals, and are due in January for the calendar year. If you would rather pay by check, you may send it to me, at the following address:
Tracy Miller Geary
c/o The Boston Authors Club
8 Richards Road
Lynnfield, MA 01940
Please be sure to make the check out to the Boston Authors Club. Kindly include an email address and I will let you know that I have received your check.
I hope that anyone with news about their writing and publications will reach out to me at tgeary@alumni.Harvard.edu soon so I may include you in the upcoming newsletter. I look forward to hearing from you, and to meeting many of you.
