A word about the Grasmere Writers Group: We are Michele Ruby, Gayle Hanratty and Bob Sachs. All of us are graduates of the Spalding University MFA in Writing Program. We rely on one another for support, criticism and inspiration. Check out the websites of these wonderful people. Joe Peacock, a founding member of the Grasmere Writers, died in March, 2016. He was a close friend, a dear person and a wonderful writer of both prose and poetry. We miss him. I will keep the link to his website here as long as his family keeps his site up and running.
