Joyce Holder, a member of Conway Creative Writers, recently completed a history of the Clear Lake School House and submitted it for publication in the Lawrence County, Arkansas, Historical Journal. The history contains research material from the National Archives regarding the school being built by the WPA, the school records from the Arkansas History Commission and Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives.
Mrs. Holder, in collaboration with her husband, Edward, has also written two family histories and a church history. She also enjoys writing humorous short stories. She became a member of Conway Creative Writers soon after moving to Conway four years ago. The Conway Creative Writers group gives her the incentive to continually look for and write new stories.
Conway Creative Writers meets each Friday afternoon at the Faulkner County Library from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone interested in writing is welcome.
