Newsletter Archives

The Omnium Gatherum & Newsletter was published and mailed almost every year since 1994. Filled with news of the publishing and other successes of our past-participants and staff, along with profiles, interviews, and articles about writers and writing, and notices of Community of Writers’ events and activities, the Omnium Gatherum & Newsletter was a forum for past, current and future members of the Community of Writers.

Now we are moving the Omnium Gatherum to a new, more current form, online. (See Current Alumni News, above.)
