The Noble Pen for Sept 17, 2020

On-line meetings

We have gone to on-line meetings for the duration of the coronavirus problem, and they are working well. To participate, you can use the Zoom app on your smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer with a microphone. Use of a camera is optional. You can also call in with any phone but it would be long-distance if those rates apply to you.
For further details and the meeting ID number, contact us.
In the meantime, if you want a restaurant or take-out meal, it would be good to patronize our usual host, Scott’s Restaurant. Check their hours.

The Noble Pen for Sept 3, 2020

I.O.W.A.

The annual authors event will be virtual this year. If you want to participate, you need to sign up by Monday Aug 31. See information here.

No submissions this week

I suspect that our low attendance recently means that too many people still don’t have easy Internet access after the storm. Those who did show up have no material for Sept 3. The Zoom time slot will be available, so people can get together and chat if they want.
