Deadline for food entries swiftly approaches…

So, a few have admitted that they would love to bring food, but don’t want to compete in the Cook-Off! Not a problem! This is a community pot luck where all dishes are welcome, prize worthy or not. Southern tastes and community are our themes and we hope that all interested parties will bring a dish to make this a sharing, caring, entertaining event! So entering the contest or not, send us your food info by February 19th at 5pm. Now, get cookin’! Also, if you’re interested in taking a three week creative writing workshop with the wonderful Arisa White, check out the blog at: and get in touch!
