Hi Everyone, Today we held our December meeting. The January meeting will be on Sunday, January 20, 2013, from 12:30 to 3PM at Bella Caffe in Park Rapids MN.
LuAnne, Mike, Niomi, Scott, Sharon
TALKING STICK: We will soon be sending out the Call for Submissions for Talking Stick 22. Tarah is getting it on the website.
JACKPINE WRITERS BLOC WEBSITE: Tarah has placed a donation button on the JWB site for easy use. Some of our members had requested this.
MISCELLANEOUS: Jerry wrote a letter showing our support for the Armory Square Art Center. The Board members reviewed it and it was sent to Paul of PRLAAC. We can envision using this space for Book Release parties and workshops.
We are now on the email list for the Library so we will receive notification of writing events there.
OUR WRITERS: Jerry is progressing nicely on his Good Shepherd book. All the stories are now written and various people are reviewing them.
Scott is going to be the editor for a new book on Philip Jose Farmer’s work. This is Sci-Fi. Scott and his wife have also just opened a new book store in Park Rapids.
Mike just had a story and photographs about black powder muzzleloader hunting published in Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine.
Niomi is working on her memoir and we discussed her whole concept today. We can’t wait to see the whole thing.
Shasha Porter of MPLS has completed her book called Canvas. This is an interactive journal for navigating difficult transitions. This is a neat book with room to write and draw as you work your way through hard situations and life changes.
Congrats to all of you!
GOOD INFORMATION: Check out Mary Carrol Moore’s blog. She often has excellent checklists for revisions or line editing. Very helpful.
Check out Book Baby. They also have great tips for editing.
Scott showed us his new toy, a Samsung Note. Amazing all the things it can do. Check one out.
Some of our writers read things they were working on and the rest of us critiqued. Another excellent and productive meeting! Hope to see you next time!
Jackpine Writers' Bloc will be sending you a receipt that you can use as your tax deductible donation. Thanks for your support!
