Valentine’s Day Potluck


Valentine’s Day Pot Luck Brunch for Writers: The Writing Group of Woodland Hills, CA, plus some members of California Writers Club – San Fernando Valley Chapter.

The famous Life Style writing coach, Bernard Selling, center in the visor, spoke about adding “Internal Thoughts and Feelings” to improve any story, for which he received a prize. Gail, back row 5th from the right, sang beautifully and also won a prize. Jeri , peeking out right front, won the top prize for continuing to give the very best critiques, which is so important in helping writers improve their writing skills. Judy, in the hat, was also presented a prize for continuing to provide the conference room at Bella Vista for meetings of The Writing Group of Woodland Hills.

Alan and Norma Wills were the hosts. Alan is in the red shirt with his hand on Bernard Selling’s shoulder.  It may sound crazy but Alan and Norma also hosted a Valentine’s Day Dinner, that same day, for 22 friends! Alan was the cook – Baby Back ribs were enjoyed by all.

NOTE: Both Writing Groups are open to new members. Call or email Alan for the dates of the next meeting of either group: 818-222-9923
