News from the Village Writers Group

The Marlay House 

426 W Ponce de Leon Ave, Decatur, GA 30030

Let's get together over food and drinks and develop some ideas for the new  year. Novel and fiction critique groups worked through 2018, but the First Tuesday monthly meetings were on hiatus. How can we be the best "community of writers for writers"? A workshop series, writing contests, publications, share experiences... anything is possible. 

We've reserved the big enclosed booth in the back, a good place for discussion. Bring your ideas and enjoy good company, good food and drink. Free and open to all, but (oh darn) you pay for your own food and drink.

Meetings coming up:

(all monthly meetings at 7:00 pm)

The first VWG anthology is on sale for $10.00 at monthly meetings. You can also order it on-line at LovesLostandFound.webs.com. The book is entitled
Loves Lost and Found,
or, Love is where you find it.

Lynn Hesse and Sally Matthews joined Tony Miller on the selection panel; none of the three had made a submission, so there was no conflict of interest. The panel picked the following entries:

Short Stories
"Big Box" by Cecilia Dominic
"Leslie's Last Concubine" by Kenneth Allen
"A Luscious Epiphany" by Kaye D. Schmitz
"When the Hurleyburley's Done" by Susan Crawford
"Family Defined" and "Where Furniture Goes to Die" by Cheryl Hart Snapperman

Poems
"Room with One Window" by Aaron Bean
"Rooms" and "Wars" by Susan Crawford

The cover picture is the gift to VWG of Mary Frances, both author and artist, and a past member. It shows a chair that appears in both of Cheryl Snapperman's stories as a supporting character.

Congratulations to the chosen authors, and thanks to all who submitted.
