Wendy Weiler and Barbara Robertson
People continue to sign up for the Writing the Waves cruise leaving out of Port Canaveral on May 12, 2013. That may sound like a long ways away, but to get your choice of cabins and secure a spot in the limited number of spots available for the writing program, it’s best to put down a deposit early and not have to worry. The final payment isn’t due until February 2013.
Two people who registered early are mother and daughter, Wendy Weiler and Barbara Robertson. Let’s get to know Wendy and Barb.
Wendy Weiler says, “I was twelve or thirteen when I was introduced to Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allen Poe. This sparked an interest in writing poetry which allowed me an opportunity to express myself. I wrote poetry throughout my school years, and when I went to college, I enrolled in creative writing and journalism courses at Seminole State College. I still enjoy poetry and hope to put together a book on my poems.”
Barbara Robertson says, “I read incessantly as a young girl, sometimes reading late into the night when my parents were asleep. A career as a secretary afforded me many opportunities to develop some writing and composition skills. I attended a Florida Writers Association conference with Wendy several years ago and found out about Patricia and Writing Your Life. I love to express myself, and this is a wonderful outlet. Both my daughter and I are looking forward to the cruise to further enhance our writing skills.”
