It grew to almost 250 members and many published authors came out of it. I attribute the boost to my writing career to the inspiration of the workshops, master classes and conferences as well as the encouragement of other writers.
The readings from Offshoots last night often brought tears to my eyes. The theme was fragility and because we have many members who write in English as a second language and who have stories of war and being refugees the ability to shape essays, poems and short stories grabbed my heart.
It is an honor to have been part of the group and to associate with so much talent.
