August Meeting Minutes 2021

Hello Everyone, today we held our August 2021 meeting.

PRESENT: Sharon, Mike, Jan, Erin, Dawn, Niomi, Mary.

TALKING STICK 30: We are still reading proofs. We hope to have the book done by the end of August. We can then mail them out to the published writers.

At some point, we need to pursue the idea of a virtual writers’ workshop. Perhaps we could do one in October or November.

WRITING EVENTS: A special thank you to Niomi and Dawn for taking care of book sales in Hackensack at the Art and Book Festival this year. What a great job they did!

League of MN Poets had 21 categories for recent contests. Dawn entered some of her poems.

Today was the last day for the Blank Canvas event at the armory.
