What are you writing, or interested in writing?

I write mostly poetry and children's stories, although I have an unfinished mystery lodging in my computer files waiting for an end. I myself do not yet know who committed the crime.


I am professor emeritus of anthropology. After retiring from a wonderful career of research and teaching, I've been painting and writing. I started several seniors writers' groups and co-edit "The Jefferson Quill,"an in-house quarterly.

What Ruth K. is saying about this Meetup Group

I very much enjoyed the members and their interactions. I liked their thoughtful critiques of the works presented to us. I found the members I spoke with interesting people I would enjoy meeting again.
