Dear Pagoda Writers and all creative souls,

Mark you calendar for Saturday, July 13th to attend our next workshop featuring author/poet Le Hinton. Le has graciously accepted our invitation to come back to inspire us to keep up with our writing whether it be poetry, memoir, fiction, etc - whatever you enjoy writing about. These workshops and the camaraderie between all of our members instills a sense of purpose, motivation and creativity in all of us.

We may come together some as strangers who are courageous enough to attend a group and come to a private home that they have never been to before but we leave together as a group that has very similar interests and goals. Many have become close friends and it has been wonderful to participate and observe over the last 10 years or so with hundreds of people attending each year. Our speakers have gone beyond the call of duty to bring their best to us each month. We could hold our workshops without any speakers but I find that they enjoy being here as much as we enjoy having them. They bring with them a view of how far we can go with our own writings and that is my purpose. Somehow these generous people who are willing to come and ask nothing in return seem to come into my life and therefore all of our lives making us richer and wiser. What a blessing to know so many that have done so much for all of us. If you or someone you know would like to be included in our speakers list please don't hesitate to call me and tell me more.

If you truly want to learn and grow in this journey with us make sure you attend each and every workshop if you are able. Even if you don't believe that the focus of our speaker can help you achieve your goals there will be something you will hear that will be to your benefit. You may be pleasantly surprised??!

Let's try something new in July! Bring your favorite book, article or poem and learn more about the authors background. Also write a brief piece about what they are writing about and why you have enjoyed reading it. What did you learn from the writing and their story? Actually we did this once before and it turned out quite interesting.

Please RSVP before the 12th of July...with fair weather we will have a great view of the trees, birds and squirrels and a nice breeze to enjoy.

Hoping to see you all here by 12:50 on July 13th??!

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email or call my cell...as always, we all enjoy sharing some treats and/or drinks if you choose to bring something to share and a free will donation will help keep our website up to date and running smoothly.

Challenge for June and July 2019! Write at least a page a day in cursive writing, copy it and put it in a folder marked with a photo or a quote...one idea for a piece of writing that will surely get you thinking is this...Who will I be and what will I accomplish in my life by the time I am 86 years old?
