September letter from the editor

September is the ninth month of the year. Can you believe it’s here already? Summer’s gone, kids are back in school, and soon we’ll be heading toward 2016. If you’ve achieved your 2015 goals, congratulations. If you haven’t it’s not too late. Pikes Peak Writers and Writing from the Peak are here to help members and writers make 2015 a resounding success. We’re reaching out via our blog, Write Brain workshops, Ask the Prez and more.

In conjunction with the conference, the Zebulon Writing Contest opens on September 14, 2015. Are you working on your query, synopsis and entry? Have you gone to and looked over the rules? This month, Zebulon coordinator Dawn Smit joins us to talk about the organization's out-of-the box competition. The Zebulon is different from any writing contest out there, and we hope you’ll check it out.

This month we have articles about goals, world building, transitions and more. We also celebrate Pikes Peak Writers' members’ Sweet Successes.
