Sending out a Christian Wave upon a Secular Sea

Christian Authors Guild

Monday, October 2nd @ 7:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Elizabeth Buttimer

Topic: "Revving Up Your Writing."

Elizabeth P. Buttimer, entrepreneur, manufacturer and former educator, received her Ph.D. from Georgia State University, and M.S.C. and B.A. degrees from Auburn University.

Her inspiration comes from the exotic within the everyday, the intimacies of small town life; the love of the land, powerful elements of history, nature and larger than life personalities. Stir this all in a bowl and mix it with the land, history, nature, culture and characters one meets in rural living and that’s a good concept of the landscape that frequents her writing.

She has been published in about thirty publications including in the following: The Arkansas Review, Haunted Waters Press, Splash, Poet’s Choice, Unlimited Literature, The Halcyone, The Esthetic Apostle, Cathexis Northwest Press, The Raw Art Review, Running With Water Anthology of V Press LC, Blue Mountain Review, Stoneboat, Pure Slush, Magnolia Quarterly, Reach of Song Anthology, Copperfield Review, and a chapbook, ‘Perfect, Broken or in Jagged Fragments’ published by Finishing Line Press (2019).

Dr. Buttimer received the first prize in 2018 Haunted Waters Press Poetry Open, the 2018 Natasha Trethewey Award from the Atlanta Writer’s Club, Honorable Mention in the 2019 Atlanta Writer’s Club Natasha Trethewey Award, honorable mention in the 2018 William Faulkner Literary Award presented in New Albany, Mississippi, first, second and fourth prizes in poetry 2018 Cisco Writer’s Contest and previously second prize in poetry in the national Let’s Write Contest. She received first prize for a children’s picture book in a contest sponsored by Seven Hills Literary Review and Tallahassee Writer’s Association and published in Seven Hills Literary Review.

    took place eaгlier! I bookmarked it.

    I sent a donation as requested for the Christian Authors Guild, with the intent on being contacted for membership but I haven’t heard from anyone concerning this.

  3. Hey friends, Mike had mentioned to me a few months back that Cynthia had taken over the group ( unless things have changed). It’s been a while since I really sat down and wrote what God gives me to write. I still desire to reach others through my devotions, in my sphere of influence, that might not otherwise see a need for God. Covid has changed a lot. I’m ready to try to get back into writing with purpose and learning from some of the best . C Doug Rogers

    1. Doug,
      My apologies for not responding until now.

      Yes, Cynthia is still with us and she will be our guest speaker for Monday, March 6th @ 7PM.
      Yes, Covid did cause things to change but God is on the move.
      It’s been quite hectic for me the past three weeks. I will be updating CAG’s website tonight.
      Look forward to us getting together.

      God bless,
      Betty Booker
      CAG Webmaster
