MARGE BARRETT WORKSHOP AT JERRY’S ON 7-24

BLANK CANVAS GALLERY
This has been open in Park Rapids since Memorial Day weekend. It is beautiful and it has been a great success. There is an open house for the general public on Monday June 21 and there is a closed event today for board members and contributors. Artists who are interested in displaying their art should contact them. They will have a new website up shortly. You can be an exhibiting member or nonexhibiting member.
We hope to do another 20×20 event some day and Blank Canvas would like to display them for us.
The Hackensack Book Art event is coming up on Saturday August 28.
There was to be a book sales event in Wadena on Saturday June 19, but it was cancelled due to the tornado. We hope they will reschedule it.
Jerry attended the Loft 35th Birthday party. Faith Sullivan was there along with many other excellent writers.
October 2 is the date in Fergus Falls for the Lake Region Writers Network event. Scott will be doing a screen writing workshop there.
The Brainerd Writers’ Alliance will be having their annual contest soon.
Several writers read what they had recently written. The rest of us critiqued them. We had a great group today and lots of good discussion.
