Village Writers Enjoy White County Conference
On September 3 Myra Rustin and Madelyn Young traveled to Searcy,Arkansas,to attend the 21st White County Creative Writers’ Conference at Harding University. Three featured speakers gave excellent presentations, and Myra and Madelyn enjoyed their day with 60 to 70 other writer friends from across the state.
Although unable to attend, Village Writer Jerry Davis won two contest awards: an Honorable Mention in Contest 7 "Good as Gold" Award and third place in Contest 6, "Whodunnit" Award. Congratulations, Jerry!
Our Village Writers’ Club also sponsored a contest calling for a humorous short story about a misunderstanding, 1500 words maximum. The top winners were present at the conference, and Madelyn was happy to congratulate them and take their photo:
