Celebrating Local Writers
About a year ago, I joined a local writing group thanks to my fiction professor, Nikki, who introduced me to two fabulous writers at the downtown Copper Rock. A combination of Nikki’s guidance in class and Wade and Colleen’s feedback at the writing group helped build the confidence I needed to send my first story. And for all of their help, I am very thankful!
Now I am happy to share that Wade’s story Daniel’s Keep has been published in this month’s Encounters magazine. He is a wonderful writer and deserves to finally celebrate all of his hard work!
Wade, Colleen, and (a new addition) Bettyann write stories once a week for their blog Black Coffee Fiction. These weekly story deadlines help keep their writing mojo afloat. But more importantly, it has inspired Wade and Colleen to self-publish their best pieces, which can be purchased from Amazon.com. This includes Colleen’s “trashy” (her word, not mine!) romance novel, “Yesterday’s Secrets, Tomorrow’s Promises.”
Check out their sites, purchase a copy of their work to support local arts, and enjoy their stories over a black cup of joe!
