Star Wars Literary Guild meets in Greece
In April 2004, the Star Wars Literary Guild reconvened in Greece where Kirsty was staying for a year in a small place on the Peloponnes called Paralio Astros. We indulged in our favourite activities: talking, eating, drinking and dressing up (we also did do some sight-seeing). This picture was taken during the 'Greek Myths Party' on 20 April 2004.

Wars Literary Guild dresses up in Virginia
On occasion of the release of The Revenge of the Sith the Star Wars Literary Guild reconvened in Virginia. Needless to say, there was some dressing up - though by far not as exessively as in our wilder days.
Here we dress up as Princess Leia (3 times) and Darth Vader respectively.
Star Wars Literary Guild reconvenes for their 10th Anniversary
Ten years after the heyday of the Star Wars Literary Guild, we met again to celebrate this occasion. Here we are looking for the site of the great hall or the double shrine of Raedwald in Rendelsham, without success. 28 March 2007.

Star Wars Literary Guild and Babe the Blue Ox
2011 saw the Star Wars Literary Guild once more reunited in California. On the way to Oregon we could not pass this lovely statue of Babe the Blue Ox at the Trees of Mystery without having our picture taken.
been a while now that the Star Wars Literary Guild met. Jobs,
children, distance, and lack of money are all to blame. Here's to
hoping it won't be too long before we meet up again.
