Congratulations to cj
Summer is upon us. You can feel the excitement in the air as neighborhood children squeal and ride bikes till almost dark. The same excitement filled the air last Friday night when the spring Oracle 2011, the fine arts review for the University of South Alabama, made its appearance.
cj has not one but TWO piecies in the publication. She read one at the reception held last week amid the grins and "atta-a-girls" of her two sons and a roomful of people.
One is a humorous and moving, nonfiction piece about the wedding of her son, Mark. The other a noir, fictional short story with exceptional details, draws the reader into the character's life and leaves you guessing. Nothing like an O'Henry ending.
The Oracle 2011 is jampacked with well written stories and poems, a few by other writing friends, Terry Rozum and Sue Walker, plus unique artwork.
It's always a joy to see new pieces created by budding writers mixed in with the pieces of already published writers. Congratulations to Frank Ard, Editor-in-Chief, for an excellent edition of Oracle and to all the writers and artists. Mahala
