WRITING, ARTS, WORKSHOPS AND CONFERENCES: The next six months is going to be very busy. I am always afraid to look beyond today - this hour; it is scary! Oh, well here it goes.
Last Saturday I was elected to be the new president of the Twin Lakes Writers. This is a group I founded Spring of 1998. I was the president and started a newsletter which I was the editor. March 2004 I organized the first all day writers conference. My speakers, my dear friends Max McCoy, Ellen Gray Massey and Vicki Cox made it a big success. I am thankful to the members and two ex-presidents, Robert Harper and Nancy Thacher-Cery who enabled the group to grow while I took some time to reflect, rest and work on my career. The Twin Lakes Writers will be having their meetings this Fall at the new library in Mountain Home.

This Fall the North Central Children's Writers & Illustrators will be meeting in October at the new library. Author's Day at the library is December 5th.

The Ozark Regional Arts Council will soon be in their new conference room in the new Veda Sheid Community Development Center at ASU/Mountain Home.

June 26 1-3 pm NC Children's Writers & Illustrators meet at Lakeview City Hall. More information will be place on this blog. Lots of excitement with the creative arts.

Thank you both for your comments. God is first in my life. He allows me to be able to do what I do. My family and friends are necessary to me and I am important to them. We all must reach out to encourage
and inspire each other.

Congratulations, Mary, on the presidency! :) You'll have to let me know when these meetings are. I might pop in!
