Writers Group Celebrates Halloween

Each year members of our writers group dress in scary (or otherwise) costumes for Halloween, and we bring our spooky (or otherwise) stories to share with the group. It’s one of two nights in the year that we don’t critique. The other night is when we celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns with poetry.

This year the costumes and stories were extraordinary! Unfortunately, our photographer was not extraordinary (me) so some of the photos were too dark to post. But you get the idea. Here is Mary Bess – You guessed it: “Writer’s Block”!

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!
