Today we held our April meeting. Our next meeting will be held on Sunday, May 15, 2011, from 12:30 to 3PM at Bella Caffe in Park Rapids MN.
PURPOSE OF A WRITERS GROUP:
The purpose of a writers’ group is to learn to write better, to learn to take criticism and suggestions graciously and use those comments to revise and improve your writing. Reading a sample of your writing to the group will make you aware of what others see in your writing–perhaps something that you didn’t realize. A good writer can become a better writer by being open to suggestions, by being willing to change and revise and try new things.

TALKING STICK 20:
We are progressing on the layout. Tarah had hurt her wrist so that slowed us down for a bit. We have sent out most of the “no” letters and as soon as the layout is more complete, so we know how long the book is, then we will send out the rest of the letters and contracts. We are perhaps a bit behind this year.
Angela Foster has been teaching writing classes at the Park Rapids Library. Sari has been attending. This is on memoirs.
Russ attended a memoir writing class by Will Weaver in Detroit Lakes.
RED BRIDGE FILM FESTIVAL:
The Red Bridge Film Festival in Park Rapids will be coming up soon. We were hoping for a report on that from Scott.
Many of the attendees today read samples from what they are working on now.
Hope to see you next time.
