Happy August!

Last evening, six of us met for our monthly dinner. A special welcome to newcomers Erica, Bev and Trina. The conversation was an animated one as we discussed a variety of topics, among them our respective writing journeys, epublishing, stalkers, and British vs Canadian schools. We also listened to Bev's latest poem and encouraged her to enter it in a contest.
