Since the 1980s....
various newspapers, magazines and websites
Yes, at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich. and Maranatha in Muskegon. Also been on several writers retreats
growth in topic areas and in range of publication outlets
I am interested in developing writing outlets and skills.
Our 5-17-16 meeting had eight writers and four critiques. We shared a lot of info about upcoming writer conferences - including Word Weavers boot camp Aug. 12-13. and W.W. members get 50% off registration fees for Speak Up Conference (July 7-9) and Maranatha Christian writers conf. (Sept. 29 - Oct. 1). Critiques: Doug M. shared his surprising conclusion to his short story "The Inheritence," We read part of the first chapter of Avonlea's historical novel, Anne shared the painfully true story of a home mishap, and we read a devotional piece by Darlene on "cleansing" anger... Quite a variety, as usual. Remember Teresa Lasher's book signing at Rockford City Hall on Sat. June 4 (10 a.m. - 1 p.m.), and our Word Weavers chapter-wide picnic on July 19 (details forthcoming). Our next small group meeting is June 7.. See you then!
