Indian Lake Writers’ Group Newsletter, May 13, 2015

Eight writers met for a lively meeting on Wednesday.  The growing camaraderie of our group is evident in our conversation and the shared appreciation of the works produced each month.

One suggestion for next month’s writing was to begin with the words “On the road to…,” or perhaps to use the setting poem format distributed at the meeting.  Of course, each of us can always do his or her own thing.

Once again, our works included both narrative and poetry and we shared memoirs as well as thought provoking pieces concerning the universe and the place that we hold in its immensity.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 10 at 1:30.  Newcomers are always welcome, and we would be delighted to see you there.

Report from the Writers

Eight people attended our April meeting and there was a sense of reunion after the long winter.  Everyone was glad to see each other again.

We began with a few moments of silence in memory of Nancy Strader.  We will miss her presence very much Continue reading

WRITERS’ GROUP NEWSLETTER Donna Bradley March, 2015

March is an interesting month, often a great month to just “get away”; and several of our members did just that for a variety of reasons.  Can you blame anyone for taking advantage of a break in this long winter?

Our remaining members were enthralled by what seemed to be the first hint of spring.  Temperatures were in the forties, ice was turning to slush and the sun was shining.  We sat around a small round table and with enthusiasm had a great meeting despite only a few of us who attended this month  At the onset we decided that this meeting would be devoted to listening to each other and offering support and advice.  It turned out to be a very positive experience with many helpful responses.

Writers Group Newsletter

Wednesday, February 18th at 7pm in our library will be an open mic night.  We hope many of us and also many visitors will join us for an evening of shared personal stories.
How exciting that our order of forty more Aster and Ink books arrived at the post office this very morning.  Since our assignment was “Timing”, this arrival followed suit.  Hot off the press we have already sold fifteen books and are holding an additional six for others.  So, twenty one are gone and nineteen to go.  With our big Winterfest celebration this coming week we still have plenty of books available and an opportunity to sell more.
Our meeting was filled inspiration and comradeship.  We had not assigned “love” as a topic but love appeared in one form or another in most of the pieces shared at this meeting.  We had a love story based on “timing”, as well as another one based on a tree transformed into the sculptor of a woman’s torso. We heard the story of how the love of the mountains inspired one couple to move up to Indian Lake.  Personal notes shared by their receiver revealed how written words have the ability to glow with the love of friends and family who live at a distance.
