I’ve just joined The Writers Place in Kansas City. It’s a well established organization for writers and has been around for a long time. Back when I was helping start Writers Hall of Fame in Springfield, there was talk about setting up something similar to the Kansas City model but we couldn’t pull it off. I don’t get to Kansas City often but have plans to go in October for the Andrea Bocelli performance. Maybe I can become better acquainted with TWP on that trip. Meanwhile I’ll enjoy their newsletter in the same way I receive and read the publications of The Society of Midland Authors. I don’t get to their headquarters in Chicago either but it’s nice to stay informed about authors in the eleven states they serve.
My thanks to Tina Hacker, poet, old friend, and colleague from Hallmark Days, for walking me through the process and putting in a good word for me.
