irst of all, I would like to say - Welcome to the new Southwest Manuscripters web site... Actually, the same site, just with a different look.

     So far just the Main Page and this one have been updated, but the rest will follow suit soon.

     Second, you will notice a work of art depicting an historic author on the main page.  I plan to change this from time to time, reflecting the dichotomy that exists between art and writing.  Each inspires the other...

     The famous writer shown here is, of course, the well-known Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.

     Most people are familiar with her work, "Frankenstein - The new Prometheus."  But how many are aware that she was a prominent feminist in a pre-Victorian age.  Her famous Mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, was also an ardent feminist and was well known for being a firebrand for the cause...

     Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin and her husband was the renown poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley.

     Now... have a look around... We have the meeting information posted here with the Guest Speakers for our meetings, as well as our picnics and parties...

     Also, some History here, with information about our on-going "History Project."

     These and many other things are outlined on our MENU page, which is a good place to start.
