Spring blossoms, SCN & a Spring Review
Tulips blooming. Forsythia too. Even a clump of William Wordsworth remembrance appeared outside my writer window. Do you remember? Daffodils - I wandered lonely a a cloud. Our 3rd grade class in Wagner, S.D. memorized it and the words echo in mind whenever I see those flowers. What poems are filed away inside your head?
Anyway, it's a beautiful spring day and one for me to be grateful to the Story Circle Network, one of the most supportive women writers' organizations I've encountered. It's a not-for-profit with international members and chapters. Dedicated to women and their stories. Posted on their website www.storycircle.org/index.php are the words of Susan Wittig Albert. "Storytelling is healing," from her book Writing From Life. They have a newsletter, publish a Journal, feature a writer competition - the Sarton Women's Literary Awards for women's memoir, contemporary and historical fiction, have a conference. And offer reviews of books by women, for women. Yesterday, my cozy mystery was featured in the review section and you're invited to take a look.
