So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Local Writers will be interviewed on radio.

Recently Shawna Rose, hostess of the Blue Sky Show, called me to inquire about having local writers appear on her radio show.
I was on my way out of town and didn't get back to her until a week ago. Meantime, Brenda Kay Ledford, had contacted Shawna and is going to appear on the WJUL/WJRB FM Radio Station 97.5 at Young Harris, Georgia on Saturday,  March 2, 2013 at 11:30 am, 2:00 pm, and 7:30 pm.  The program, "Blue Sky Show," will also air on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 7:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:00 pm. 

Shawna interviewed Brenda Kay about her new poetry chapbook, BECKONING, that was recently released by Finishing Line Press (

Maren Mitchell, author of Beat Chronic Pain, an Insider's Guide,  is expected to be a guest of Shawna Rose soon.

Look Who's in Wild Goose Poetry Review

On his site, Musings, Scott Owens says,
The new issue of Wild Goose Poetry Review went online last Wednesday, and it has already had over 1200 views. The most popular item in the issue so far has been the review of "The Sound of Poets Cooking," with nearly 100 views. The review of Rhett Iseman Trull's "The Real Warnings" has been second most popular with about half that many views, followed by three poems by Maren Mitchell. The most gratifying part of this release for me has been the number of people leaving comments and the conversations about poetry that have developed as a result.
I am delighted to see poems by Maren Mitchell and Brenda Kay Ledford in the present issue of Wild Goose Poetry Review, the online journal edited by Scott Owens. Scott visited our far western part of NC earlier this year and our poets turned out to hear his work. He read at Coffee with the Poets and he heard Maren and Brenda Kay read their poems.
Now both Netwest poets have been published in the Wild Goose.
Go over and read this issue and let me know what you think of the reviews and the poems.
Karen Holmes and I will read at Scott's Poetry Hickory tomorrow evening at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse in Hickory.
