November Review

Filed under: Open Reading Minutes — show1miyamura @ 10:20 am

November 2013

Everyone I heard from had the same opinion. It was such a good reading.
A good mix of old faithfuls who bring to our group consistency. Members who have been a away for quite sometime and refresh us
with their efforts they have been working on in their closets. And new members who pull us in a unexpected direction with
new waves of ideas. This last Open Reading had all this and more.

Eight Readers Readings.

Master breathing and your world expands.
Essay     ~ Things you may not know about me.
I have found teaching English as a tool for making art or sharing ideas motivates children to study far more than text books.

For a moment I can close my eyes and pretend it smells like you but it doesn’t, not really.

Whispering knights, traitors to the king.
prose     ~ Darwin’s Dragons ~
Magic could not see why the fire did not burn just for him.

David Tooley ( USA )
poem       ~ Piercing the Night ~
Here is an ever moving target and never quality for a place.
