The most recent meeting of Munich Writers was on Wednesday 2nd April. Blair Gaulton, Joseph Danaghie, Jim Martin, Andy Elrick and a prospective new member were in attendance.

Blair began by reading some of his poetry including two longer pieces entitled "Stereo's Commentary on Life" and "Picture Frame" Both of which represented departures from Blair's other work.
The new member then read a science fiction piece.
Jim then read "An Easter Message: It's Good to be Alive" which purposely leads the reader to believe that it is the story of a man undergoing heart surgery at a local hospital but reveals towards the end that he was simply on a tour of the facility.
Andy Elrick followed with an unfinished and untitled piece drawing on his experiences living as an ex-patriot in Germany and the absurdity of certain situations he has found himself in. Positive feedback from fellow Munich writers led to a promise to work on it further which will, hopefully, be kept.
Joseph finished up with an excerpt from his book, which he wishes to finish by August this year.

At this point the members repaired to a local watering hole. The next meeting will be held on 16th April at 6:30 pm.
