The Jackpine Writers' Bloc is native to Minnesota. We are a writing group as well as a publishing company. Our literary journal, The Talking Stick, has become a state-wide publishing ground for amateur and experienced writers alike. Our goal in publishing writers is simple - we publish to encourage solid writing that shows promise, creativity and brilliance.We started where most writers up here seem to start - hiding behind jack pines with few outlets and few who could enjoy our craft with us. Things have changed. The writers in our group, and those from many other writing groups that have sprung up in nearby cities, offer experience, criticism and encouragement in abundance. We are a community, too - If you're looking for people who write to become better writers and better people, we are people who believe that being published is a fortunate thing to be cherished. We meet every month. We want to help. That's why we're here. We meet on the third Sunday of each month from 12:30 - 3:00 at Bella Caffe in Park Rapids, Minnesota and we hope you will join us there.
