March Meeting

Last month we tried our hand at creative nonfiction. This month we're going to learn more about this interesting and challenging writing technique.

Scott Tilley and his wife now reside in Goochland and are adjusting to the retired and country life. Scott is busy volunteer teaching Creative NonFiction classes in the Goochland community and at the James River Correctional Institute, in State Farm, Va.

He has published numerous articles in newspapers, magazines, and other publications. He's most proud of his published Lenten Devotionals in a Methodist publication. He is working on a novel, still. His wife is active in outreach. Together they thank God for the numerous blessings in their lives.

Writing Conferences

Look for my letter coming soon about local writing conferences. American Christian Writers (ACW), of which we are a chapter, has come to Richmond for the last seven years because of RCWW. The first four years were successful in that ACW showed a profit which, obviously, is necessary to stay in business. Year before last the numbers were down, but because of our prompting they came back last year. Last year they broke even. This year the nubers were way down. Next year they will not come back to Richmond. Pray for me as I consider if RCWW can fill the need for an annual Richmond conference if indeed one is needed. More later.
