Hello again! There are plenty of things going on for writers right now. One of them is that WordPress did something to my site, and spoiled the look of it. 😕 I’ll get it fixed, but didn’t want to delay this post. So, apologies if it looks odd. The content should be fine 🙂 The…

Thank you to the members who persevered to get into the meeting when I had a Zoom fail this month. On the plus side, we were a select group, which gave us a chance to talk things over. Feeling overwhelmed by the current situation seemed to be a theme, so it was nice to have…

Thanks to everyone who came to the Zoom meetings of our WritersMic and Writers’ Rendezvous this week. I was delighted to welcome some out-of-state members too.

Around twenty of us gathered at Barnes & Noble in Westport this month, to chat, encourage and suggest writing solutions for each other. Poets, fiction and non-fiction writers including journalists – everyone had something constructive to offer. We are a great community! And now, first things first. The Westport Library is presenting a performance of…
