Middle Fork River provides setting

The Calhoun-Gilmer Writer's Guild held their annual retreat last weekend along the banks of the Middle fork River. Sprits were not dampened by the rain, the group engaged in writing exercises and storytelling.

The diverse group, with members of all ages and genres, meets monthly, with new members always welcome. See Calhoun-Gilmer Writer's Guild under Links.

Several of the writer's attending have published works, and some have received special recognition for their works, more recently the works of Jeanne Wilson and Lisa Sheldon were winners in the West Virginia Writer's Contest.
