18 May meeting notes; 25 May reading list

May 19, 2023


Eight people attended: Benafsha A., Burt, Chris L. (a short story, “Tools”), Glenda, Gloria A. (a short story, “Lost Love”), Lance (1.5 chapters from Bluejay Rises), Leighanne, and Rosie (a chapter from The Great Mrs. Ziegfeld).


Gloria is moving to Oregon in the very near future. (Wah!) Depending on her schedule, this may have been her last meeting. We wish her fair winds and following seas and hope to see her in print in the not-too-distant future. Good luck, Gloria!
