Glenda Beall, NC Writers Network West Program Coordinator and Founder of Coffee With the Poets

Glenda Beall is the glue that holds NCWN West together. Under her watch, she began Coffee With the Poets, a monthly program that is attended by poets from the Netwest area. It is a program that is open to the public. There is always a special guest poet and there is always an open mic reading.

Glenda is an amazing person! And she does do a wonderful job for Net West!

Glenda has done more for NCWriters Network West than anyone I know. We all work together, that is true, but we have to have someone that knows what is going on everywhere and holds it all in their head so the rest of us can write, write, write. There is not enough money in the banks of America to pay her what she is worth to us.

Think of her often and thank her when you get a chance.

Keep up the great work, Nancy.

I second the fact that Glenda is the glue that holds us together. I don't know what we would do without you - thank you so much for all of your help and guidance.
