Alana White has started the ball rolling by setting the date – October 9, 2010, during the Southern Festival of Books – for a reunion of writers from the early years of the Nashville Writers Alliance. We didn’t even call ourselves by a formal name in those days. Then John Egerton did an article about us and he gave us the name. If you didn’t get an email from Alana, she probably did not have your address. I can’t wait for the reunion!
Reunion of Writers
I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry. For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published. I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!
