Beanery Online Literary Magazine Returns

Filed under: ANNOUNCEMENTS — beanerywriters @ 3:00 am

The Beanery Online Literary Magazine is returning after a long period of not posting regularly. My apologies, but life happeings interrupted many of my regular activities. Two new sisters entering my family (never having met in over sixty years) and the illness/loss of a brother-in-law, for whom my husband held medical power of attorney and was executor of the estate (eleven hours north) took a toll on my time and energy.

I hope to post once weekly and in January return to a twice-weekly posting.

The Beanery Writers welcome submissions. Please email to beanerywriters@yahoo.com with the word “SUBMISSION’ in the subject line.

Beanery Writers 5/9/11 Group Prompt, 5/13 Meeting Date, and Announcements

Filed under: ANNOUNCEMENTS — beanerywriters @ 10:20 pm

BEANERY WRITERS GROUP MAY 9, 2011 PROMPT

BEANERY WRITERS GROUP MEETING MAY 13, 2011

The next Beanery Writers Group meeting date is Friday, May 13, 2011. We’ll meet at the regular place—the Coffee Bean Café 1:00-3:00. Gather early for sociability and/or eats. The back room is being reserved from noon to three, so we can gather and socialize without taking up the space for customers at the coffee shop.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 BEANERY WRITERS BOOKLET

Please prepare any items for the Beanery Writers 2011 Booklet. Since my life has been in disarray, we are behind and need to hasten forward. We haven’t determined if we are having a specific topic or if we are freewheeling. We will discuss this at the May 13 meeting. Please bring any items you wish to submit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

For those persons who went on field trips to Ligonier Tavern, Compass Inn and/or Eastwood Inn, keep working on your writings. Please bring them to the January 28 meeting, regardless of the stage of progress, so we can assess where we stand in terms of presenting a proposal to Kentuck Knob.

If you are writing on an independent structure, keep up the good work. These experiences/writings will be the basis of some major decisions in January. Bring your preliminary writing to the next writer’s group meeting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m pleased to hear that the prompts are stimulating people to write, even if the writings are not sent to us. Keep up the good work!
