December events

December will kick off with WOTA hosting a table at the downtown Muscatine Holiday Stroll, an annual event that brings residents and out-of-towners to enjoy the open air, refreshments, entertainment, and the goods and services of local businesses sporting their best holiday attire. We’ll be located at Trinity Episcopal Church, which will have its door open for their annual soup supper. We will have copies of both our recent anthologies for sale, and the soup is really good.

Then, join us for our annual meeting on Tuesday, December 12 in the Student Center lounge at Muscatine Community College starting at 6:00 p.m. We’ll have holiday treats to sweeten you up as we run elections for the new board members. Then, for the most important part of the evening, we’ll share our work. This month’s challenge is to incorporate the following words into any piece of your choosing: angelic, majestic, archangels, relatives, memories, festive, nostalgia, Tannenbaum, humbug, and Scrooge. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
