“Not Yet Over the Hill Gang” presents an evening of Poetry, Fiction and Non-Fiction Entertainment
May 10, 2016 at 7:00: The “Not Yet Over the Hill Gang” is a group of senior citizen writers who are members of the East Longmeadow Library’s “Every other Wednesday Afternoon Writing Circle”. Based on their own experiences, they craft creative non-fiction, fiction and poetry that tell stories filled with wit, wisdom and whimsy. The group decided to offer “spoken word” presentations to enrich their own lives as well as to encourage connections and empathy among generations.


The Writing Circle began when Elaine Frankonis, a published poet, decided that she needed to find a group of kindred creative spirits to keep her inspired. Two of the other members of the “Not Yet Over the Hill Gang” have lifelong experiences writing professionally. Betty McCann is known for the columns she occasionally writes for The Republican. Tony Matejczyk, who also worked for The Republican, has had an extensive career in both the newspaper business and in public relations.
