WOWO Wednesday 15 February 2023

The coming meeting is scheduled for Wednesday instead of Thursday, an exception.

Our session last week ended with an animated discussion about the short story The Moons of Jupiter by Alice Munroe, and it was decided to continue this on Wednesday. The focus will be on story-telling techniques that can be adopted in our own writings.

We look forward to another short story by Frank Fahy, in preparation for the collection he is planning to publish this year. Frank’s stories evolve from human situations and interactions we can all relate to, often with a twist at the end. Polished writing that is both revealing and entertaining.

Michael O’Dowd’s book James Marion Sims – The Facts also aroused interest last week. In it he vindicates a vilified 19th century medical pioneer who healed female slaves while developing his breakthrough surgery. If possible, the author will sign in to give us an insight into the background of his publication.

James Conway’s poem will be given a professional repeat this week, thanks to Anne Murray’s experienced and artistic use of PowerPoint! Two further poems by two accomplished poets will also be enhanced by this treatment.

And finally, we can sit back and enjoy the launch of Bill Geoghegan’s YouTube video of a new song. Congratulations, Bill!

Once again, viewers can expect a varied, lively and profitable two hours of high quality writing from our creative members.
