In January, Coffee with the Poets, held at Phillips and Lloyd Books on the square in Hayesville, NC was, as usual, fun for all. Clarence Newton was featured poet. We welcomed back Estelle Rice, seen above on right, along with Joan Howard, far left and Mary Mike Keller. Most of our group moved on down to The Cottage Deli and Salad Station for lunch and more talk about writing. We were happy to welcome two visiting poets in January and hope they will return and others will join us on Wednesday.
Clarence Newton read to a full house last month.
Nancy Simpson enjoys hearing poetry read at CWP last month and we were all happy to see her tear herself away from her writing desk to be with us.
Glenda Barrett, author of the poetry chapbook, WHEN THE SAP RISES, published by Finishing Line Press, brought her mother to CWP in January and both enjoyed the delicious snacks served by Elizabeth Rybicki of Crumpets Dessertery.
