Tip From St. Pete WGL - John Regh

Hi all!


Do you run to Office Depot or Staples when you need that novel's rough draft printed? Then have to wait around or come back later?
I'm pleased to announce that you don't have to any more!

Sir Speedy, at 4855 Park St. N, St. Petersburg, just south of 54th Ave N, on the east side of the street, is offering a 10% discount to FWA members on all their printing needs.

Sales manager (and our contact) Robin Fiegle has worked there for 20 years! No longer do you have to rely on someone who may have just been hired. No longer do you have to run to the store with your copy. You can email her a file, and she will take care of the rest. Of course, it helps to have it in the right format, and she'll be happy to guide you in setting it up right.

Her email address is:, Phone # is: 727-545-9000.

I'm including a link on our website, and hope to find more businesses in the area to support our growing group.

P.S. From Susan: I understand, too, that this service to FWA members can include shipped orders! Kudos to John Regh for looking within his community to find things and businesses which will benefit ALL FWA members. John is good example of "Writers Helping Writers"!
