Writer Friends

And now for a few photo highlights from the Ozark Creative Writers Conference 2011…

Karen Nelson and Betty Henderson, Youth Editor for High Hill Press

Betty was an instant “kindred spirit” when we met at the Creative Writing Workshop in Hollister, Missouri this August.  If there were a committee to make all writers feel welcome, she’d be the chairwoman!

Karen Nelson with Brenda Brinkley, Author and Photographer

Brenda Brinkley has been spotted in The Ozarks Mountaineer Magazine, True Grit, and other publications – both for her writing and her amazing photography.  (She’s also my secret sister in the fiber arts!)

Betty Henderson, Karen Nelson, and Ellen Gray Massey, Missouri novelist

Ellen Gray Massey is a Missouri treasure, and well-known for her many books and years as Bittersweet editor and writer.

Dusty Richards, Western author, with Arkansas Poet Laureate Peggy Vining

Dusty Richards is president of the Ozark Creative Writers conference, while Peggy Vining has a lifetime of contribution to poetry – and preschoolers!

Award-winning poet and short story author, Bud Hanks

Bud Hanks, and his wonderful wife, would also be great spokespersons for making writers feel at home.  His writing has won numerous contests and been published in anthologies.

Children's author and Six-Word Memoirist Beth Carter with Karen Nelson

Beth Carter has a wonderful gift for six-word memoirs and recently published her children’s book “What Do You Want To Be” – also, check out her blog listed to the right on my blogroll!

Thanks to all my writing friends for making it a great weekend!
