Anhinga: It's a Wrap!

Wow, what an exciting final day! I spent 2 sessions with Victor Bockris, a very interesting character. His first session dealt with minimalist poetry, and I don't think anyone was successful in generating a poem he thought met the criteria. His later session involved human speech, and he recorded and played back our readings, which is something I'd recommend to everyone, to see how your work sounds. It's a step up from reading out loud, as you can listen after the fact to see how it really sounds!

Several panels filled out the day, another one with Anne Hawkins, the literary agent, and the author-agent relationship (Mary Anna Evans is one of her clients) with Mary Anna, also. Publishing contracts were reviewed in the other panel presented by the 3 ladies who make up the Anhinga Writers.

Hopefully we'll see some new faces in the coming months. I met several from St. Petersburg and hope they find time to join us for our meetings, and ultimately become members.

See you soon!
John
