    The Writers Place advisory board member Michael Pritchett is  writing a newsletter for writers -- a craft newsletter for fiction. 

    As Pritchett explains in his recent post, "This newsletter is about craft so if you aren’t into writing craft, get out while you can.  More specifically, this newsletter is about scene counting, that vice of novelists and perhaps almost nobody else."

    The editors of the Writers Place Yearbook are too modest to call it a “showcase,” but that word describes this anthology perfectly.  Poetry,  fiction and creative nonfiction reflect the artistry and skill of authors who cherish the written word—exactly why all are active members of The Writers Place, an organization dedicated to the craft of writing. This collection hosts a rich collage of works by several poets laureate, world-known storytellers and novelists, award-winning authors, and those who are at the beginning of their literary journey.  The digital version of the Writers Place Yearbook is available at no cost on The Writers Place website. Print copies may be purchased through Amazon. Proceeds benefit The Writers Place.

    We are pleased to share this celebration of life for Bruce Hopkins, who was significant to The Writers Place. Former Writers Place Board Member Bruce Hopkins passed away in October 2021.  Bruce was instrumental over the years to the Writers Place in so many ways.  His legal expertise in nonprofit law was unparalleled, and his warmth and sense of humor shined at our events.

    The Writers Place regrets to announce the loss of Bruce Hopkins, a long-time member of the Writers Place Board of Directors who attended all of our events and offered legal advice in nonprofit law.  He brought wit and wisdom wherever he went.  He died Oct 31, 2021, from a failing heart.  He wrote over 45 books including scholarly books on nonprofit law, practical guides about nonprofits for laypeople, memoirs, and poetry over his lifetime.  We shall miss him greatly.
