Happy Second Anniversary

It's hard to believe that two years have passed since we started this group.

While the original group came from Dennis Fitter's creative writing class (February 2010), we have been joined by Cindy Carroll and other members of Guelph Write Now.

Last night, we shared our writing experiences and encouraged each other to start twittering, join Facebook, send out query letters, write more regularly...All in all, it was an enjoyable evening and we left inspired to write and send out our work.

A reminder...Dennis Fitter's book, Mexico City, is now available.
