As you might know, my writing group, Elwood Writers, is an active and committed cohort of four,. Member, Barry Lee Thompson, recently wrote about the group on The Writing Life, a blog hosted by Lee Kofman. Lee is the author of fiction and non-fiction books, and a superlative teacher – among other talents – of writing to established and emerging writers. In December 2020, she launched the Elwood Writers anthology, Every Second Tuesday, online through Readings. More details about the collection of prose and poems can be found here.

Barry’s own collection of linked short stories, Broken Rules and Other Stories, was published by Transit Lounge in 2020 to critical and popular acclaim. Read about his book here.
