Desert Writers ADA Version

Welcome to the ADA Version of our Website

This ADA version of the website is provided in hopes that people accessing the site who rely on electronic page reading will have equal access to the information.

There are six pages in the site: the home page, about page, join the group, contact, blogs and FAQs. Each page has a header with the Desert Writers logo and the contact information: kath@desertwriters.com and 480-818-6211. There is a navigation bar with a link to each page. On the home page, there is video showing a sailboat on water at sunset symbolic of being on a journey. The following text appears in the video: We each have a story to tell. Our stories want to be shared. Sometimes we need a little help from our friends. Join your friends at Desert Writers for encouragement, support and accountability.

On the home page, below the video, there is text that says, Desert Writers is a support group for writers of all experience levels. We provide feedback, accountability, and inspiration. Feedback is important to become better writers. Accountability helps us to keep on track and achieve goals. There is something inspirational about being around other writers and seeing it can be done. Together, we can be better.

The group has two types of meetings. Bi-monthly, small-group meetings review five pages of an author’s work and give valuable feedback. Monthly meetings are where the full group gets together for a presentation on a relevant topic. Topics include, “How to Find a Literary Agent,” “How to Make an Effective Plot Twist,” and "How to Publish for Free on Amazon." Membership is free but we take a free-will contribution at the monthly meeting to pay for the meeting room. Come check us out!

Each page on the website has a footer with another, identical navigation bar, contact information and a copyright statement. The About page has the following content. Desert Writers is a community of writers helping, encouraging, mentoring and holding each other accountable so we can share our stories with the world. Our community has two types of meetings. The first is small groups of around eight members that meet every two weeks. Members of these groups submit up to five pages of their work for group review. The other members of the group offer suggestions, insights and feedback.

The other type of meeting is the monthly large-group meeting held on the first Saturday of each month. The purpose of these meetings is to learn about relevant topics and share information. Some of the upcoming topics to be discussed are:

• How to Find a Literary Agent
• Creating the Perfect Pitch
• How to Self-publish on Amazon
• What Makes an Effective Story
• Creating Memorble Characters
• How to Market Your Book

Being part of a writing community can be very inspiring. Wake up your muse by listening to other writers. Discover that you really can do this. Join Desert Writers today!

The join page has the same form as listed above. The contact page only contains the email address and phone number that is listed at the top of each page. The blogs page has no blogs yet. The FAQ page has not content yet. Please check back in a few days for more information.
