What's New at Coffee and Critique? Coupon Clipping and Collecting Contest Certificates

Our Coffee and Critique writers have been productive this month.

Last week Alice Muschany had another Opinion Shaper column appear in the St. Charles County Suburban Journal. "The Queen of Bargains creates line of succession" is about her family's bargain-hunting and coupon-clipping activities. As usual, Alice serves up another healthy dose of humor in her family stories.

Alice is also giving away a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for your Breast Cancer Journey this month over on Donna's Book Pub.

For the past three years Alice has generously donated copies of books with stories about her breast cancer survival to bring awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Stop by Donna's Book Pub by October 31 and leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of the book with Alice's warm and witty story, "Hats Off to Betty with Love."

Alice isn't the only writer who's been busy this month. 

Last weekend four members of Coffee and Critique were recognized for their writing talent during the annual Ozark Creative Writers Conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Doyle Suit, Marcia Gaye, Sarah Angleton, and Janet Bettag combined for a total of ten wins during the awards ceremony. Click here to see what they won.

Tune in next week for more announcements about accomplishments and events of members of Coffee and Critique, including information about Jack Zerr's book launch of Noble Deeds

Donna--You and your critique group are as busy as bees.

I keep expecting to hear that Alice will be going an international tour with Gloria Gaynor soon. It doesn't hurt to wish...

Alice said...

Gee, that would be awesome. After meeting me in person, I'm surprised she hasn't called every now and then to chat!

A shout out to all the C&C contest winners. What an inspirational group!

We did have a good showing at OCW. It is a fun conference and this year had some great sessions. It was my first time to have a book table and I even sold a couple! OCW is a once a year event, no membership, and all registrants can enter all the contests. The area of Eureka Springs is beautiful and worth a few extra days for sight-seeing. I hope next year we will have many more of us attend.
