Ryan couldn’t attend today but he sent us a quote that called to him. This is a quote from a poet called Adrienne Rich. “Poetry is the liquid voice that can wear through stone.”
We had a low attendance today because of Father’s Day but we still had a great meeting with lots of good information. Most of the writers read things they are working on. Jerry read us the intro to his next book That Reminds Me.
