OUR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
Believe it! It's been five years since the Mendocino Coast branch
received its charter from the California Writers Club,
which currently has 21 branches and 2,174 members.
THERE WILL BE CAKE! Chet Body will play and probably sing, then our founder, Molly Dwyer, will talk for a few minutes on club history,
followed with five minute readings by:
CHARLIE FURY, BARBARA MACKAY, DON KIRKPATRICK,
LEA CALLAN, FRIEDA FEEN, 2015 recipient of our scholarship to the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference, and BRYANT BURKHARDT, another 2015 recipient of a scholarship to the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference, will attend if the timing of the birth of his first child doesn't interfere. LES CIZEK will do a recitation, a reading, and/or singing!
ANNOUNCING THE 2016 CWC LITERARY REVIEW
CWC members should have received the 2016 edition of the CWC Literary Review, an anthology published yearly containing stories, essays, and poetry written by club members. The fifth Review, produced by CWC volunteers, is published by the Central Board, providing an opportunity for member-authors this year to be read by well over two-thousand pairs of eyes.
The submission window for the 2017 issue will open on September 1 this year, 2016 and submission will be accepted through November 30. Guidelines are on the club's website, www.calwriters.org. Members may submit one or two items for $10. Submission details will be on the website soon.
