Our Last Meeting

The South Arkansas Writers met by "conference call" at 2 PM on Sunday, 18 October 2020. Present were Janet and Jack Ryan, Rick Vosper, and Marilyn Joyner

Our next meeting will be at 2 PM on 15 November. This will be the third Sunday of November. It seems early because the first of November is on a Sunday. We will meet again by phone at FreeConferenceCall.com. If you know of some alternative place for us to meet, please let me know.

News and Announcements:
1) Desireé wasn't at this month's meeting, so we assume that she is recovering from her second knee surgery. Get Well Soon, Desireé.
2) Marilyn's poem, "Masks and Gloves Abound", received a Third Honorable Mention in the Poets' Roundtable of Arkansas' September contest.
3) Desireé's essay, "A Short Thread", was published in the Norton, Kansas, newspaper where her mother lives.
4) We have still all avoided the corona virus.

Writing from Prompts:
Rick read a flash fiction story, "A New Breed", that he's working on. Marilyn read her poem, "Just a Smile", Janet read "The Fruits of Halloween" for Desireé.

Prompts for our next meeting include Thanksgiving, in-laws, "Release a monster in your writing" (from Writers Digest). This does not necessarily have to be a traditional monster. WD's suggestion included chickens and soggy-bottom toddlers. And (as always)... "Anything You Want."

If anyone has anything to be critiqued, a news items, or a prompt for our next meeting, you can email me at jackwryan@gmail.com

"See you" in November. Stay healthy.
