Our next meeting will be at 2 PM on 17 March at Main Street Pizza.


The Arkansas Writer’s Conference is having another writing contest, but you need to be present to win. For more info see https://www.arkansaswritersconference.com/

Desireé and Beverley are still wrestling with the Amazon editors to get their Kansas book formatted as they want it.

Writing from Prompts: Desireé read “Gertie.”

Prompts for our next meeting include: “Time (or something) is running out” (from Writers Digest), “St. Patrick’s Day,” “An intellectually challenged toaster (or other appliance)” (suggested by Janet), and (as always)... "Anything You Want."

We critiqued “Chapter 5, The Johnny Cash Show” of Jack’s “Memories of Old Tucson” and his short story, “The Land of the Purple Pines.” He got a lot of suggestions and had some interesting discussions.

If anyone has something to be critiqued, a news item, another prompt for our next meeting, or would like to present a short “program” on something that you think would be of interest to us all, you can email me at jackwryan@gmail.com

See you in March. Stay Healthy.
