BAWL Newsletter

April 2023 Edition


Editor's Note: Houston's Bay Area Writers League is evolving to embrace more technology via the website.

Please take the time to visit our website since there have been changes which we hope will be helpful to all of you. There are features for Members Only, including the Forums where you are encouraged to participate starting with introducing yourself on the Welcome to the new BAWL forums thread.

If you have a suggestion for a topic please send it to

We are working toward eliminating our usage of for our Write-Ins. Our meetup account will end about May 1. Our website offers registration and confirmation features for all our events including the write-ins.  By default you will be notified when new events are loaded but you may opt out of these notices if you prefer. If you encounter any issues with these notices or any other feature of the website please use the Forum and post your issue in the thread titled: Website Feedback, Report Bugs here.

With meetups and events in mind it is a good time to gather our thoughts on resuming in-person Special Events and the Critique Group. We are actively looking for Venues. Please see that thread in our Forums and add your thoughts to both.

This week the feature of the month is We Need A Name for Becky's Serial!

As you can see, the format of our newsletter has changed. Instead of containing all the information, our Table of Contents will now take you to our website where all the features, columns, news items are stored on the website. This preserves those items as well as making it easier for you to review prior items within categories such as Tips of the Trade and Becky's Serial.

If you would like to contribute to the monthly newsletter you can send your proposal to and remember the Deadline for submittals is the seventh of the month.

Feature of the Month

Becky's Serial has remained unnamed for too long. Initially it was offered to the group to pick a name. Everyone was encouraged to supply their proposal and then one would be picked. We are now getting to the stage where the title will be selected by the end of April, 2023. Post your suggestions on our forum. 

Becky will donate a years membership in BAWL to the one chosen.
