Published Books

This is a fundraiser for Jackpine Writers’ Bloc. This outdoor sculpture has been donated to JWB. If you are interested in buying it, please make a bid. We will accept bids till April 1, 2020. Funds raised from the sale of the sculpture will be used for expenses related to the publication of the Talking Stick.

The sculpture design was created by Tim Nelson. It was purchased originally for $400 at the Sculpture Walk auction in Bemidji MN. The measurements are: wingspan 52 inches, nose to tail is 44 inches. It is made to weather outdoors. This would make a great addition to an outdoor garden.

We will deliver the sculpture to the purchaser.
Please send your bids to sharrick1@wcta.net. Thank you.


The Jackpine Writers’ Bloc has been publishing books since 1995 – a remarkable achievement. What started as a writer’s group hoping to get itself published became a state-wide literary journal. Follow us back through our years and you can see the changes in the times and the people in the volumes of the Talking Stick.

We also accomplished a great achievement in 2007: we published an individual for the first time! Our very own Jerry Mevissen. In 2008 we published the 20×20 and also published another version of the 20×20 in 2011 joined by The Blank Canvas Gallery. We published another of our members: Richard Fenton Sedarstrom, in 2009, 2010 and 2011 with his three poetry books, we also published Marion Holtey and LuAnn White in 2010. In 2012 we published our own Board of Director’s member Sharon Harris.
