Valley Writers


On May 20, Valley Writers in Roanoke celebrated our 28th birthday as a critique group. With cake and excellent readings, and with continuing participation by Rodney Franklin, one of the founding fathers, we followed our tradition of reading members’ material and providing feedback on it.

From left to right, Betsy Ashton, Cherie Reich, Becky Mushko, Joan Petrus, Dick Raymond, Melanie Huber, Keith Martin, Millie Willis, Ken Thornsbury, Leslie Hall, Rodney Franklin, Jim Morrison, Wayne White, and Beverly Telfer.

    What an intelligent looking bunch! Glad you had a great meeting.

  2. Well, Amy. Looks can be deceiving!

  3. I'd prefer: “Why, that's a sexy looking bunch!” But, I'll take intelligent looking…even if looks are deceiving. 🙂

  4. Wow, 28 years! Kudos to you and the group for a great dedication to the art of writing 🙂

  5. Thanks, Joanne. As a group, we continue to be strong. We are so eclectic that I am constantly surprised by the different voices in our written words. And I learn something at every meeting.
