|Women writers in the St. Robert's area have joined together to form a chapter of the National Association of Women Writers (NAWW). Ft. Leonard Wood writer and columnist Teresa Hernandez has been named regional representative.

The first workshop/luncheon is scheduled for May 6, 2006 at Drury University in St. Roberts. Award winning authors, Candace Carrabus-Rice, Barri Bumgarner, Ann Leach, and Marlene Carter will be speaking on a variety of writing and publishing topics.
