Due to the Guest Critique Event, we did not have a regular business meeting this month.
Members in attendance were: Andrea Antico, Marnie Buckley, Diane Chambers, Kelly Ann Compton, Carol Denker, Florence Elliott, Jody Glittenberg, Pat Kennedy, A. Marie Kriss, Sue Luxa, Nancy Peterson, Lorrie Reed, Molly Rue, Gwen Scott, Virginia Small, and Sheila Wright.
Guests in attendance included Pam O’Mara and Vickie Drake along with the guest presenters listed below.
This year’s Guest Critique Event was fabulous! We were honored with presentations by: Kathryn Peterson, Juanita Pope, Angela Barron, Sophia Baldwin, and Maggie Ferguson. Their writings included poetry, novel excerpts, short stories and memoir. Discussion was lively and continued on into the delicious luncheon provided by Kriss. While the luncheon was being set up, guest Patsy Stockton shared poetry written by her late son. All the presentations were works worth hearing. Thank you to all of you for sharing.
On Sunday, March 10, a book signing for Nancy Mayborn Peterson’s new book will be held at the Denver Woman’s Press Club for her new novel Not to be Forgiven.
Within a week, Jodi Glittenberg will have her book Triumph of the Spirit: Land, Love, Life published by EJ Thornton. You will find this book under Jodi’s pen name: J. E. Freis.
Congratulations to both Nancy and Jodi!
Special shout outs go to: Kriss for organizing the event and for her fantastic lunch. You are a definite jewel, Kriss!
