The members of the Prairie Quills Writers Group released their latest anthology with an evening of reading and music at the Art Gallery of Swift Current, Oct. 13. 

Eight members read from their contributions to the group's sixth anthology, “Change is Not a Four-Letter Word.” Each anthology has a different theme to present a new challenge to the writers and this time the theme was change.
The writers tackled the theme from various perspectives. Dianne Miller's story “Plain Jane” reflects on the unintended consequences of a young woman's decision to change her appearance, while Tina-Marie Letwiniuk wrote about relationships and life changing events in “Love at First Byte.”
Tekeyla Friday read from her science fiction adventure “Ship of Doom” about the interstellar journey of a fashion designer and her android models. Irene Bingham's story refers to the change experienced by a farm girl who moves to town for her high school education, while Peggy Worrell's story “Aggie's Troubles” is inspired by a true event on a farm, when a tragic accident changed a family's future. Anthea Loran read an excerpt from a story about her own life experience of growing up as a twin, and she also read a poem about autumn.
Madelon Smid's romantic short story “Only Seconds” explores an encounter between a musician and a rancher that changed their future, and Joyce Olesen's story “When Borghild Stepped off the Train” tells the story of a young Swedish woman's journey to the prairies to join her older brother on his farm in Saskatchewan.
The Prairie Quills Writers Group meets every third Tuesday  of the month at the Pharmasave meeting room in Swift Current. New members are always welcome.
