Orly and Therese, What a brilliant idea to announce this here! Eager to throw my full and considerable enthusiasm into this new venture. I have already benefitted so by participating in the informal Yahoo loop—meeting so many WF authors in one spot has been heaven! Thank you so much to everyone who had a hand, a foot, or a brain wave devoted to this effort!
Kathryn, you have been an instrumental part in the success of the yahoo loop! However, the stories all have a female protagonist who has an emotional arc. All that to say, I love the idea of the new organization. Just wondering if I belong. Just a novice here. Hi Greta. It sounds like you could happily fit in WFWA and get a lot from the members.
Happy writing! I knew there was one!!! Thanks for helping me out, Kris.

Movers and shakers — ah, no pun intended. It seems like this has been a long time coming. I know that you and your committee have put in countless hours of your own writing time bringing this into being. Thank you so much. We, who hope to benefit from your efforts, salute you. Nine months, Pam!
The good news, no morning sickness and the weight gain was far easier than with the real pregnancy. Thank you, Orly, Therese, and all those involved for your vision and dedication. What a huge accomplishment!
Cheers to you! I look forward to being a member of WFWA. Our goal is to have the majority of workshops free to members. There may be some that will have a fee associated but that will be the exception. Thanks you, Orly. Thanks, David. We have a few in the group! Great Idea — if you email me at MJRoseauthor gmail. Very interested. This feels like the new group will have equally high standards. Congratulations, Orly! Thank you so much for all the hard work that you and the other organizers have put into this.
Thanks, Natalia! And yay for coming to the retreat. This sounds great.
Never could figure out what genre it was! Hi Jill. Hope to see you in the WFWA forums. Cannot even begin to explain how excited I am about this.
