Six hearty souls ventured out in the heat to participate in the branding workshop presented by George Pintar

Mark Davis critique of writer’s work
A member will read a short (3 to 5 minutes max) segment of his/her writing and then the members will comment on how they perceive the writing. Mark will be the session leader and explain how this will work. We invite members to bring 2 to 3 pages of their work to read and have critiqued.
Several members have asked for this to be done. For this to work we need some members to bring to this session some of their written work.
