Hearing the Silent Cry, Seeing the Invisible Pain: Healing Our Youth
AuthorHouse, 2003 - 164 pages
This anthology represents the efforts of twenty-three members of the Orange County Branch of the California Writers Club who have not only thought, "Someday I'll sit down and write something for publication," but also who have actually done it. Composed of professional writers and editors, teachers, engineers, medical professionals and clergy, we became an official branch of the parent club on April 8, 2001.
Our legacy dates back to 1909 when a group of artists and writers, including author Jack London, founded an informal writer's club at a San Francisco restaurant. CWC was officially chartered by the state of California in 1913 "for the purpose of providing a forum for educating both members and the general public in the craft of writing and marketing their works." We are one of the youngest of the 14-branch organization.
Divided into two sections finished work and Wet Ink, or works in development this anthology containing short stories, excerpts from novels, travelogues, and poetry; some are humorous, some serious, and some inspirational. We hope that our efforts will be a pleasure to our readers and an inspiration to future writers.
