Sasha Deal: Green eggs and Wing Nuts!

Cat got your tongue? Literati! Our own Technical director Diana Diehl has been pried from her obligations writing a screenplay (for pay!) to play with us again, this being her second entry into Wing Nuts.

Sittin’ by the Doc on the (Monterey) Bay

Good morning(at least it is morning at the towers) Literati Here is a quote from Diana Diehl’s wingman, John Steinbeck: “The writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man’s proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit—for gallantry in defeat, for courage, compassion and love. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these […]

Literati!  As I have said-an original thought, by the way, “(re)Build it, and they will come!” Sheri Strobaugh felt the pulsations through cyberspace that A Word with You Press was being solicitous, once again, and had a contest. Or a little bird told her(that […]
