Our Last Meeting

The South Arkansas Writers met at 2 PM on Sunday, 21 November 2021 by phone at FreeConferenceCall.com. Present were Janet and Jack Ryan, Rick Vosper, Marilyn Joyner, and Desireé Stipp-Bethune.

Our next meeting will be at 2 PM on 19 December. This will again be the third
Sunday of the month. We’ll also meet via FreeConferenceCall.com unless there is a remarkable decrease in the Covid rate before then.

News: Marilyn received a flock of awards in the Poets’ Roundtable of Arkansas’ Poetry Day contest - a 1st Place, three 2nd Places, and enough Honorable Mentions
to give a total of nine awards. Jack had a letter to the Editor published in the October/November 2021 issue “Analog Science Fact & Fiction.”

Writing from Prompts:
Desireé read Dear, based on our “something thought to be gone wasn’t” prompt - about a deer’s wild ride.

Prompts for our next meeting include “Solstice,” “Winter,” “Christmas,” “Christmas while sober,” “Something searched for is not there” (from Writer’s Digest), and (as always)... "Anything You Want."

We critiqued Rick’s “Chapter Three” and “Chapter Four” from his Requiem for a McGuffin novel, and Desireé’s short story, “Lazarus.” We had some good discussions with some helpful suggestions.

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 December. Stay Healthy.
