Such Talented Writers!!

I can't keep up with all the awards our writers are collecting. I've already announced about Ann Favreau, Dr. Karen Pirnot, Kerri Deiffenweirth's acceptance into Southern Maine University Creative Writing program and now, I can announce that Linda Neckel White has dominated the Fox and Quill's First Annual National Poetry Month's Poetry Throw Down. Linda was the only entrant that had votes on every one of her entries. She received the most votes to garner the Contest Winner, "Scair't Rabbit" (sp.).
Congratulations, Linda! Congratulations, also, to the other poets in our local groups who entered. I know Ann Favreau, Joe and Jean Porter, and Jim Kelly all entered. Our New York friend, Lois Stern, has a story in the May edition of Fox and Quill on her experiences in getting wireless communication accomodations in their Venice Condo. :)
I would like to thank Jack Wolf of San Diego, once again, for his interest in our Florida writers! He continues to be an excellent west coast connection for us. Thank you, Jack!

Time is flying again, too! We have a meeting this week on Wednesday at the Firehall, folks! Hope to see you there! Lots of interest in the new Critique Group. :)
