The last days of Fall are here in all their beautiful colors. We recently held our monthly meeting of the Wannabe's at UD's River Campus. I would encourage you to take a look at our Blog site to see the picture of some of our writers and contributors. We had a very good meeting even though we changed room three times during the course of the morning.
Here is an update on what we are all talking about and writing:
Mary Lou: Read her story entitled: "Baby in a Basket" which she has submitted as one of the stories to be included in the new anthology that Don H. and his team are putting together. Great short story of life in eastern Europe when large families. did I say twelve children, and parenting responsibility was a requirement of all townspeople.
Rosie H: Reported that the Fine Art gallery in Town and Country is having a gala on November 8th and the public is welcome. Here is a copy of their invitation
Don P: He always has a new project. He has been working with his Pastor to have each parishioner write a one page biographical summaries of their life. The leaders of his church hope to have it published in the future.
He shared a poem that his pastor wrote about our current election process:
Don also shared with us a listing of all the publishers and the genre's that they specialize in for our use.
Cindy K: Recommended that we investigate a library in Columbus for Ohio authors and publishers. The organization's name is Ohioana and has over 45, 000 books in its collection and reviews over 200 books a quarter for its Ohioana Quarterly. Too bad but they do not take self-published novels or eBooks. Too bad...they must be living in the past.
Fay D. She read a wonderful story that she wrote in the late 1970's about a woman's convention that she attended in Cincinnati. There were over 1, 000 young women in the audience who were captivated by the talk that was presented by Maria Von Trapp, of Sound of Music fame.
Thanks for sharing this magical tale, Santa.
If you wants some feedback from your writing peers this is an excellent site. I am going to check out the other sites with some other short stories that I have written and put on the shelf. I will let you know.
Our next meeting of the Wannabe's will be early in November due to Thanksgiving being early this year. We will have our meeting on November
Also look for an announcement in the coming weeks on a Writers Event at UD River Campus. Happy Halloween
