Wendy Joseph Writer and sailor
Hi Wendy. Thanks for joining up. There are three of us in the group now. (The other hasn't gone through the formality of joining yet, but we met.) We' thinking of a meeting a week from Monday; we'd each bring a poem to pass around or take with us to critique. Other ideas or thoughts are welcome. Cheers, NR
Here's a link to the Words of Delight book I mentioned last night: http://www.amazon.com/Words-Delight-L....
Ryken has a shorter version (200 pp.) which I used to teach a small group, but this one is much better.
Don't let her intro fool you, this lady is a WRITER! She has that Lewis ease with words, and she conjures really hi-def scenes. I just started reading her book (google it), and I know they wouldn't waste any wood on me, but they'd make her pyre burn extra, extra hot.
Hi Wendy, thank you for joining us! We look forward to meeting you in the future!
Welcome, Wendy! Looking forward to hearing your story. :)
Hi Wendy. I don't understand your message. What are you trying to convey?
part 2 When Andrew J moved to England last July I became the main organizer. We meet every other Sat afternoon and we used to alternate comedies, tragedies and histories, but I came to feel that with some of the histories it's better to do them in succession. I seized on the recent discovery of Richard the III's bones as an occasion to do the 3 parts of Henry VI which lead up to R III. Maybe we could go for Merchant of Venice on April 27 if you'll be here and others are interested.
You were serious about the able seaman! Cool. This group got started in 2008, I think. Two of the earliest members were Andrew Balet, who is still involved off and on, and Andrew Jenner, who was the main organizer when I joined in Jan. 2012. He is now in England, where he is from - he used to belong to a similar group in college there. I know which plays were done when, but less about other parts of the group's history. to be continued...
