E HorwitzAt the September 12 chapter meeting, Eric Horwitz brought us his invaluable insights into the numerous resources that the Montgomery County Public Library system has to offer writers.

The meeting was jam-packed with information, but unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties and Eric was unable to share his visual aids with us. Because of that, Eric has sent not one but four slide shows to share.

  • writing resources
  • research
  • journals
  • articles
  • foreign language education
  • e-magazines
  • and more
