Member Announcement Shared at the August Meeting

The following was shared at the August meeting:

Writers on the River member, John Byrne, had a play – SAINT BRENDAN’S LAST VOYAGE – performed by the Silver Springs Stage (Maryland) as part of its annual one act festival (900 or so entries, 13 selected) on August 22 – 25.

John has another play ANGEL OF TROY to be performed (dramatic reading rather than full staging) in Spokane at Stage Left as part of the Hit and Run VII short play festival on September 27 and 28.

He also has a story PASSAGE MONEY to appear in the third edition of Gold Man Review (Salem) which should be out in October of this year. FYI, the Review will be open to submissions for the fourth edition starting in January.

John would like to thank the great people at WotR for their support and hopes to read part of his story at the next reading.

And that next reading is a week and a half away – September 16 at 6:30 p.m. Join us!
