FCW members who shared their writing in 2008
"12th Annual Night of Sharing"
One of FCW’s most popular programs is the Annual Night of Sharing, which began in 2000.
Mardell “Mutt” Potter, one of our members, was an older gentleman, tall and quiet, who entered all our contests, both poetry and prose. His writing was warm and often endearing. He wrote for his own pleasure, and perhaps for therapy, especially after the death of his wife.
After our May meeting in 2000, Mutt said to me, “Trudy, I don’t feel like I really know anyone. I hear people say what they have sold or what has been rejected but I don’t know their writing. I feel like I can’t really know them without knowing their writing.”
The seed of an idea took root in my mind — what about a meeting when we shared ourselves through our own writing? Mutt died before our first Night of Sharing in September 2000. The next year 2001 the second Tuesday night of September fell on the 11th. We didn’t come together to share that night after the World Trade Center bombing. Many members stayed home to grieve. Others went to prayer meetings. We rescheduled that program for our January 2002 meeting. From then on it has been scheduled for April. (*written by Trudy Graham and edited by Lavon Lewis.)
12 members have previously volunteered for their time of sharing, reading 5 minutes of their writing, so please come and enjoy hearing them read their writing.
