Writers featured in window display

| May 27, 2015

COSHOCTON – Two members of Coshocton’s Write-on Writers Guild are being featured in the front window of the Coshocton County Auditor’s Office, at 349 Main St. This display, which began in mid-April, will be in place during May and June of 2015.

Cristie Merce of Kimbolton has a display of materials relating to memoir writing, which is her passion. She has books titled:

  • “Life Writing, A Guide to Family Journals and Personal Memoirs”
  • “How to Climb Your Family Tree”
  • “Who We Are, Questions to Celebrate the Family”
  • “Grandmother’s Memories to her Grandchild”
  • “Tracing Your Ancestry”
  • “Genealogy, A Pastime and Profession”

The display also includes her picture, an Oct. 11, 2014 news article titled “Writing Memoirs,” her biographical information, and a card titled “Let Me Tell Your Story,” which outlines her involvement in OOPS, the Ohio Order for the Preservation of Story Telling.

Merce has produced an information sheet titled “Writing Your Memoirs.”  It has sections titled “Why, Where to start, and Possible Categories.”

A second member’s writings are featured, along with her picture: Carole Sulser of Newcomerstown. A tri-fold display board contains one tree picture, and three stories: “The Aging Monarch,” “The Sentinels,” and “The Watchers.”

Sulser has a two-page poster with pictures of Jeckle, a rescued dog. Her story is titled “Jeckle’s Journey.”

Sulser loves dogs, and has taught a dog obedience course. Her next story is titled “Wolf Spirit.” It is about her dying little terrier named Toby.

There is a four-page story titled, “Getting to Steam Corners,” which is in Morrow County.

Her last story is titled “Rise and Shine.” It contains an Easter message.

Another member of the Write-on Writers Guild, Sally Kinkade, has furnished some background props. There is a small pink quilt made by the James Stitching Sisters. It is placed beneath Merce’s display. Part of Sulser’s display is sitting on a child’s green robe, with a black & white machine-embroidered cat.  This was made by Kinkade’s mother in Maine, perhaps 60 years ago.
