This piece was taken with permission from Susan Lewallen's Blog. Susan is an active member of our Creative Writing Group and is in the final stages of publishing her book Crossing Paths. Her story is taken from her 20+ years in Africa as a physician and mother.
We will have more from Susan as her publication date approaches.
I'm posting a couple of new poems from our Creative Writing Group. A new poem by Jean Abrahamson Oasis of Peace and another by Pat Peckham titled Divided Dark Sky with an illustration.
We meet on alternative Wednesdays (Next meeting Aug 21) at the RB Library from 1PM - 3PM. Join us - we do a lot more than poetry.
