Lisa Hayes-Minney welcomes writer's group
Lisa Hayes-Minney welcomed members of the Calhoun-Gilmer Writer's Guild to her
home on Rosedale Road, near Stumptown last Friday evening. Members of the group
read some of their own compositions on the Haye's porch, which overlooks the
well remembered Hersman Pond, later to be known as Aunt Minnie's Farm.
The site was an early recreational area frequented by residents from Gilmer, Calhoun
and Braxton counties. Later it was used for bluegrass festivals.
Writer's group meets beside the original Hersman Pond
Hayes, a prolific writer, is now producing a twice yearly publication "The Gilmer
Review." With the help of editing consultant Harriet Whipkey, the publication will
promote Gilmer county at newsstands, tourist stops and retail outlets. Ten thousand
copies will be distributed.
The writer's group will meet next month at the home of Jeannie Wilson, near
Lisa Hayes-Minney can be contacted at 304-354-9132.
Area residents desiring to join the writing group are welcome.
