Today, August 16, 2009, we held our August meeting of the Jackpine Writers’ Bloc at Bella Caffe from 12:30 to 3PM.
Present: Mike, Regina, John, Scott, Deb, Jodi, Christine, Sharon, Tarah, Richard.
TALKING STICK 18
Our book should be delivered the last week of August.
Several of us will be attending the Hackensack Book and Art Festival this coming Saturday, August 22. There will be books for sale, readings, crafts, art, music, readings. It is from 10 to 4. This is a great annual event.
MIDWEST MIX MAGAZINE
Look for the Sept/Oct issue to see a review of Talking Stick 17 by Audrey Helbling.
The Nevis Muskie Days people are interested in taking over the 20×20 event for their event in 2010 (perhaps 12×12) using local artists. Tarah and Sharon would probably still do a book with the art and writings.
There will be a special art exhibit from North Dakota at North Country Museum in Park Rapids in September.
The Arts Council in PR has been planning an Art Co-op, looking for a place to rent to have art on display. They hope to have something in place by the Holidays later this year.
At the old library in Bemidji, there will be an exhibit called Portraits of Itasca County, now through Sept. 26.
NOVEMBER–NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH
Christine will be heading this up for our area this year since Cindie will be gone on a trip at that time.
Many of the writers present read what they were working on and received helpful comments and suggestions. We had such a good day and good conversation about writing and writing events. It was one of those days where we hated to end the meeting.
Please join us next time!
