Happy Christmas 2014


I want to wish everyone a happy Christmas and thank you all for such a productive year at the BLPG. In particular, I say a heartfelt thanks for being so supportive of Emily and me after we took over from Iris.

This year we’ve had many and varied discussions, and a number of great guest speakers—Lisa Litjens, Ian Reid, Felicity Young, Rose Van Son, Dawn Barker, Nathan Hondros, Amanda Kendle.

Our members have enjoyed success:

  • placing in short story competitions—Pat, Glen, Leonard, Lynne
  • self-publishing their works—Elizabeth, Matt,
  • being published in journals and collections—Charles, Glen
  • launching blogs—Helen
  • being selected for writing residencies—Lynne, Emily, Leonard.And we shouldn’t forget Deb, who produced a baby!

    Please let me know if I’ve missed anyone’s achievement and I’ll add it to the list. Continue to tell me your good news so I can share it with the group.

I’m looking forward to our meetings in 2015, and our first one will be on February 15th. I’ll send out an email just before that date.

Until then, I wish you and your families a happy Christmas, and happy writing until we meet again.

Louise 🙂

    Thank you Louise, please keep me in the loop. I hope to be able to take part in BLPG in 2015. Congratulations everyone on your writing successes and babies! I have my head down writing with a mid-January self imposed deadline, and I’m loving it.
    Wishing you all a joyous Christmas, New Year, Solstice, Holiday, whatever is your celebration. Be safe!

  2. Lovely to hear from you, June! I hope you meet your self-imposed January deadline. The holidays can be a great opportunity to write, or they can be the opposite, with too many distractions …

    Have a lovely holiday period and see you next year! 🙂
