The Flash Fiction contest is going very well. We have 35 participants. Entries are coming in and members are voting for their favorites. It is not too late to join in on the last 2 weeks of this 5-week challenge.
Next, please note we are not meeting on July 4th weekend…rather we are meeting Sunday, July 13th for Critique sessions. Bring your poems and short manuscripts of 3000 words or less. Be sure to carry five copies for your group.
Even more wonderful to announce, Professor Aliki Barnstone has agreed to give us one more try! She will be our August 3rd—SPEAKER!!!!!
Aliki Barnstone, celebrated poet and Creative Writing instructor at MU will give us a hands-on approach to generating text and imagery on the power of “place.” For poet and prose alike, we all need to enhance our ability to capture place, space, or a sense of displacement. No matter what the weather, we hope to see you there in mass to start off the year 2014 with your whole-hearted participation.
Aren’t you excited to join us? Put CCMWG on your schedule, on the calendar, on your IPhone reminders.
