Present: Richard, Niomi, Sharon, Jamie, LuAnne, Deb, Vern, Mike.

BOOKS
Talking Stick 19 and Richard’s second poetry book are both at Morris Publishing right now. Marion is thinking of doing a book of her poetry.

GOLF TOURNEY
Our benefit tournament this year probably brought in about $1200 to help us publish our book. We don’t have the final figures yet.

WORKSHOPS AND OTHER EVENTS
Next Saturday, July 24, is the Marge Barrett workshop on Short Shorts. It should be a great time at Jerry’s farm near Nimrod. We have 19, could take one more.

The Hackensack Book Event is coming up on Saturday August 28. We always like to attend and sell books.

Cindie’s Teen Writers Group is doing well. She got 6 teens signed up.

WRITERS RETREAT
We are all jealous that Deb is going to a week-long writers’ retreat on Madeline island, Wisconsin. This sounds so great! The instructor is Mary Carroll Moore. This is from July 24-30. We look forward to a full report.

COMING UP
Our book release party will be held on Saturday, Sept. 18 at Northwoods Bank Community Room in Park Rapids.

Art Leap weekend will be the following weekend. This does include some readings.

NEW WRITER ATTENDS
Jamie Lee attended our meeting today. She has three books with a native american flavor that she brought to show us. We wish her the best and hope to see her again.

BLANK CANVAS
The art gallery is doing well. They rearrange the art once a month and bring in new things. Be sure to support them!

Scott has been ill and we miss him and wish him a speedy recovery.

Many of us read things that we are working on. As always, we gave friendly and helpful criticism.

Hope to see you next time!
