Fremont Writers host poet and blogger Martha Clark Scala

Submitted By Knuti VanHoven

Sometimes Life seems to have forgotten you?re there. Sometimes it sends so much drama you?re overwhelmed, but is it possible to take those moments, as well as anything else you experience, and turn it into art? Poet, Artist, and Blogger Martha Clarke Scala?s work proves that the answer is a resounding ?Yes!?

At the May 26th meeting of Fremont Area Writers, Clark Scala?s topic will be ?Happenstance as Muse.?

When the other members of her original family died within just one decade, Clark Scala turned to the arts as her refuge. ?Creative projects,? she says, ?saved me from despair.? ?Today,? she adds ?I give voice to my grief?and also my joys?in prose, poetry, photographs, and videos.?

She describes her blog ?Out on a Limb? (at www.marthaclarkscala.com) as an exploration of ways to maximize joy in life. ?It?s not,? she adds, ?that I have joy all figured out. This blog is as much a meditation for myself as for you.?

How does she do it? She?ll share her methods at Fremont Area Writers (FAW) meeting on Saturday, May 26. Please join us for an afternoon of sharing and learning!
