Our Goalies Writers' Schmooze was a huge success. Our guest speakers,
John Claude Bemis (The Clockwork Dark Trilogy, The Prince Who Fell From the Sky), Karen Lee (ABC Safari), and Stephen Messer (Windblowne, The Death of Yorik Mortwell) were such patient and
gracious judges for our First Page Critiques. Quail Ridge Books
personnel in Raleigh, NC, were our host bookstore as usual and helped us
get through one more year
without a hitch.
Our Goalie, Jenny, did a great job of directing the Critiques.
We tried a First Page Critique for the first time this year. It was met
with much enthusiasm from our attendees so that this may very well be
repeated next year.
