Member of the Month Nomination: Carla Hurst-Chandler

It’s my great pleasure to announce that the person to inherit the coveted Member of the Month laurel this month is Carla Hurst-Chandler, who has graced the forums with her easy presence and jazzy, laid-back humour since 2012. It’s difficult to encompass her contribution in only six words, but I suppose “a friendly, easy-going and familiar face” might come nearest. From fiction to music to the community forum, Carla’s easy manner pervades all and her presence is certainly felt like a ripple on the water. With her vernal outlook, probably inspired by the eclectic tonics that she frequently orders from the bar, Carla is ever in the bud of literary pursuits and always ingratiates herself into the creative writing forums where she makes an impression. Always welcoming to forum saplings and as equally generous to the mature bark, I hope that you will all share my enthusiasm and congratulate Carla on her new appointment. Good to have you around, Carla!

You got that right. At my age I should exercise more caution, but for Carla I will risk it !

*Chanting* CAR-LA ... CAR-LA ... CAR-LA !

Where IS she? .... *Checks behind the sofa.*

I summon thee Carla! Appear, and grace us with your presence!
