WOWO Thursday 18 May 2023

Our meeting this week begins with a tribute to our dear member Celia Scully, who passed away recently. We shall miss her wise advice and gentle but precise comments, but most of all we will regret no longer being able to enjoy her own polished, touching and versatile poems. May she Rest in Peace.

Poems dominate this week’s list of submissions, and we can look forward to a variety of styles and contents.

We extend a warm welcome to a new member, Fred Lowe, from whom we shall hear a short story. If time allows, this will be followed by a further extract from Jutta Rosen’s novel in progress.

Discussion on two topics round off the evening. Assembling the annual anthology, with several works from a large number of members, is a mammoth task, and a members’ discussion on moot points is due on Thursday to help clarify details. The launch of Frank Fahy’s collection of short stories, ‘A Father’s Love’, available on Amazon, will also be touched on.

Not to forget the Mug of the Month competition: the key words are FAN and FLY, and the closing date for entries (to is May 21.

We wish all participants an enjoyable and inspiring evening!
