And now for a few photo highlights from the Ozark Creative Writers Conference 2011…
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!
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!)
Ellen Gray Massey is a Missouri treasure, and well-known for her many books and years as Bittersweet editor and writer.
Dusty Richards is president of the Ozark Creative Writers conference, while Peggy Vining has a lifetime of contribution to poetry – and preschoolers!
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.
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!
