The Writers Place presentation will be open to the public

Hi everyone,

I’ve been asked if my talk and reading at The Writers Place in Kansas City in November will be open to the public. TINA HACKER tells me that it will be. The public is welcome to such events. Tickets are free although a $3.00 door donation is appreciated. If you are interested in attending, mark your calendar for November 8 and I’ll give you the time and other details when I know them. Thank you for considering it.

I would love to see some friends there so I hope you’ll think about getting up a group.

The Writers Place

Hi everyone,

New plans in the works for me to give a talk at The Writers Place in Kansas City. Tentative date is November 8. Title and details still to be developed.

I’m delighted, and grateful to my longtime friend and colleague, TINA HACKER, for facilitating the event. SANDY and I lived in Kansas City almost ten years, but we moved back home to Springfield 49 years ago. Until recently I had never been a member of TWP, which is a strong organization with many successful authors and poets on its roster. Current president is Missouri’s current Poet Laureate, MARYFRANCES WAGNER. I know Tina, BARBARA LOOTS, and maybe a few others, so all the more reason why I look forward to becoming better acquainted with more of Missouri’s finest writers. More when I know more.

Joining The Writers Place

Hi everyone,

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.
