A Day To Remember by Stanley Klemetson

Bayou writers’ group conference,
A bridge to publication;
You were rewarded for your presence
On listening to their presentations,
Underdown, Goldstein and Coen

Words printed upon the page
Recorded for all to read;
Interesting stories to share,
Tall tales of fiction to hear,
Enthralled and entertained,
Relishing in the synergy,
Speakers energized us all.

Stanley Klemetson, Ph.D., is head of the Department of Engineering at McNeese State University. Most of his writing experience has been for technical publications and books. He served as editor for a college magazine and had previously worked with a publisher for a proposed text book on technical writing. One of his goals is to complete that task. Stan also serves on the Advisory Board for the Write to Excellence Center at McNeese and is taking a class on creative writing. He has started submitting works for contests and is currently working on several poems, short stories and a book.

  1. I'm so glad you could make our conference!

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving with your sweet little great grandbaby Eliza. She's precious!

  2. Well, Dr. Stanley, we haven't met but I have to tell you I loved your post. Very creative. I still count BWG and its members as my writing family. Sounds like the conference was a success. Wish I had been able to make it.

  3. How original and simply wonderful! How I WISH I could have been there.
