Writers Groups in St. George UTAH

Photo taken by Chris Caldwell of the Spectrum. I'm in turquoise jacket...
Today there is an article in our local Spectrum newspaper about local writing groups that I'm a part of here in St. George. I've certainly enjoyed learning more about writing and poetry from these groups and served as newsletter editor and publicity person for Heritage Writers, and co-president and publicity person for Dixie Poets. Attending statewide conferences and teaching classes at them has been an enriching experience and led me to develop a local Youth poetry contest now in its 5th year and to take leadership of Poetry-in-the-Park an annual day of workshops in Zion Park. It's a great retirement hobby.
