Members approved preparation for the publication of an
    anthology of members’ works, based on the report of the
    Anthology Guidelines Committee.  This is a great opportunity
    to move your writing to the next level, that of published author.
    Although some details remain to be announced, the basics are
    these: Works of all members who submit will be published,
    subject to editing for punctuation, grammar, and spelling. Limit
    one prose or two poems per member, any topic and any genre
    except explicit violence, sex, and scatology. Must be original
work of the author and author retains all rights.

The board has scheduled a vote at our August 23rd meeting on a resolution to
move our meeting site to the Library Station. We invite you to
review the
resolution and come to the meeting prepared to discuss.

Tip: Write what disturbs you, what you fear
and what you have not been willing to speak
about. Be willing to be split open.
