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."

Critiques:
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.
