TALKING STICK SUBMISSIONS:
The submissions are coming in for TS21. Unfortunately, we have been having trouble with our electronic submissions. We sent out an email asking everyone who had used our electronic method to send me an email stating what they had sent. I have heard from many of you, but certainly not all. Please send any remaining submissions to sharrick1(a)wcta.net as an attachment. Be sure to also send your name, mailing address, bio, etc. in the email. Sorry for the inconvenience.
BOOK RELEASE PARTY:
We are making plans for our Book Release Party in September 2012. Tentative plans are that we will hold it at Blueberry Pines this year on Saturday Sept. 15. We are planning to have a workshop from 9 to 12, then lunch, then the Book Party from 1 to 5, approximately. Information will be sent out when things are finalized.
KAXE RADIO/KBXE RADIO:
Jerry attended a meeting in Bemidji recently. This was the KBXE Community Meeting. This is a new radio station. The two stations will share the same program content. The programming will have a large art/culture component. We look forward to future possibilities.
Tarah Wolff has now completed her book Embraced by Darkness, a fantasy novel. Sharon Harris has completed her poetry book Unspoken. Last Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012, they did readings and signings at Beagle Books as part of the third Thursday Art Series in downtown Park Rapids. They had a great time and a nice turnout. Both books are available on Amazon.com. Embraced by Darkness is also available as an e-book.
In January, Jerry had a small group of writers at his home for a retreat for several days. They all had projects they were working on. They spent time writing, reading, and critiquing. It was a great time.
When writing stories or novels, as you are creating your characters, ask yourself: What does this character want?
We enjoyed meeting Marlys today. We hope to see her again at the next meeting!
