Final project includes a chapbook exchange.
  • HERO by Cristina White is in the recently released 2014 Gold Man Review, available on and (search Gold Man Review Issue 3). A Kindle version is also available. HERO is creative nonfiction, a coming of age story about an idealized romance that takes an unexpected turn and becomes a never-to-be-forgotten relationship.

At least a couple more announcements were shared at the November meeting. If and when we get the details we’ll share them here. In the meantime enjoy the white weather and put our Winter Reading on your calendar: December 16 at 6:30 p.m.
