Meeting this Saurday, April 2, 2022 @ 10 am

April 2, 2022

10 am-noon

Cornerstone Christian Church, Wyckoff
We meet in the Barn, 2nd building on the right.


Our next meeting will feature author Ann VanHine. 

Ann has been a member of this group, and in 2021, she published her memoir Pieces Falling. She says, "When I started my writing journey, I didn't even know what questions to ask. Today, I don't have all the answers, but I have sense of how to do this thing called being an author one little step at a time. May I share a few thoughts and tips with you."



Ann Clark Van Hine, aka Miss Ann, was born in Oxford, England but grew up in Oklahoma, Utah, Arizona, New Jersey and now lives in Brooklyn, New York. Ann is the mom of two grown daughters, the widow of a FDNY firefighter, a retired small business owner, a docent with 9/11 Tribute Museum, published writer, Children’s Ministries volunteer and a breast cancer survivor.

Since September 11, 2001, Ann has had numerous opportunities to share the story of God’s presence and peace as she navigated “a personal loss in the midst of a national tragedy.” She has shared her story all over the USA and internationally in Ireland, Belgium, England, and Japan.

Cornerstone Christian Church, Wyckoff
We meet in the Barn, 2nd building on the right.


This promises to be a colorful meeting! Our writing exercise will be to create a really short, short story with a 
color theme you select. How many ways can your color describe something without using its name? 

Do not scoff! Do not cower! Two of our members recently had stories accepted for publication that were birthed during one of our writing exercises. 

Come and grow with us, whether you're a published writer or simply a dabbler. 

I look forward to seeing you this Saturday,
