On Saturday, June 15 at 2 pm at McNally Robinson Booksellers The Lake Winnipeg Writers Group launched Voices:Volume 13 Number 1.
The winners of the Write On The Lake Contest as well as many other writers are between the pages of this magazine.
Two friends and I left for Winnipeg early Friday morning. We picked up another friend in Brandon, MB and continued on the road trip.
On Saturday at 2 pm, a young woman who I looked after on the occasional Saturday, when her parents’ were busy, came out as well as another couple who added to my road trip friends came to support me. They had to search for chairs among the many who came out to appreciate and applaude all of the writers who read from their work.
We all read a small portion to entice the audience to purchase books, and so very many did.
It was a wonderful afternoon.
I enjoy reading my work for an audience even though my nerve endings are jumping at the top of my skin until I take a deep breath and begin.
My deepest appreciation to the judges of the adult fiction contest, Patti Grayson and Sheila McClarty who found merit in my story Many Tongues.
Also I wish to thank the executive and directors of the Lake Winnipeg Writers’ Group http://www.lakewinnipegwritersgroup.com/ for organizing the launch.
Besides a publication I also received a membership into the Lake Winnipeg Writers’ Group. I am a proud member.
