Martha Rogers - Sensational writings

On Saturday, March 8, 2008, the DFW Ready Writer's will be honored with a special guest, Martha Rogers for a special presentation on the importance of using all five senses in our writing.

Although Martha’s primary writing experience is in non-fiction, she has been writing fiction for a number of years. She revised seven Bible studies for First Place Health Program, published by Gospel Light, and wrote one original for them. Martha also had several articles appear in Christian magazines. In addition, ten devotionals are included in the 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2006 editions of Penned From the Heart, and nine others appear in Today is the First Day, a devotional book published by Gospel Light/Regal Books. Her first novel, Not on the Menu, was published in the spring of 2007 in the novella collection, Sugar and Grits.

In addition, Martha has two stories in Wayne Holmes’ compilations, Whispering in God’s Ear and Embrace of the Father as well as stories in compilations by Karen O’Connor and books by Janice Thompson Debra White-Smith.

Martha resigned in 2004 as editor of an eight page monthly newsletter for the writer’s organization, Inspirational Writers Alive! after five years as the editor. She serves as President of the state Inspirational Writers Alive! and also the director for the annual Texas Christian Writer’s Conference. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers for whom she writes a devotional every week.

We hope you'll come join us for this wonderful treat. We meet at La Hacienda Ranch restaurant off Hal-Johnson and Highway 121. The restaurant is on the Southbound side between Glade and Hall-Johnson.

Meetings start at 11:00 am and end at 1:00 pm. Come join us for lunch, visiting and learning. Visitors are welcomed. You must be a member of ACFW to join DFW Ready Writer's.
