A big thanks to Dianna Graveman for letting me speak to her Lindenwood University MFA class earlier this week – a great group of women who were fun and interesting! Good luck to all of you in your writing and publishing careers.

Dianna also took the time to write a wonderful article on her blog, to which I’ve included a link:

There is a strong community of writers in and around St. Louis, and I am always impressed by the willingness of that group to share information and support each other. Writing can be a lonely process, and we all face similar issues in our struggle to publish our work. I am thankful to be involved in a group that celebrates success, and encourages each other when we suffer from the lows of rejections.

Talk to you soon,



  1. Hi Mary! I read Dianna's post about you! It sounded like a great event. Wish I could've been there! See you Saturday, I hope?

  2. She made me sound better than I was! Yes, I'll be there tomorrow! Looking forward to it.

  3. Hi Mary,
    I, too, read Dianna's post about your visit. I bet you rocked the place!

  4. No one has ever said I "rocked" anything before! Thanks for the vote of confidence! She really made me sound better than I was. Everyone needs a good editor!
