September Meeting Minutes 2021

Hello Everyone, today we held our September 2021 meeting.

PRESENT: Sharon, Mike, Jan, Ryan, Niomi

TALKING STICK 30: We are almost done proofing. We are getting the book done later than usual but we should probably be able to mail it out in late October. Then before we know it, it will be time to send out the next call for submissions in December!

WORKSHOP: We are hoping to put on another virtual workshop in February 2022, perhaps with Candace.

PRLAAC: Niomi attended the September meeting. They spoke of Art Leap, the Blank Canvas event (which was a huge success), and the Community Band.

WRITING EVENTS: Mike will be reading and selling books at Bookends in Wadena in November.

Niomi mentioned that author Jeanne Cooney had done a presentation for the Northwoods Arts Council in mid-September and did an excellent job. She writes humorous mysteries and had books for sale. This was at the Hackensack Hub and was a hotdish lunch. Cooney’s books: Hot Dish Heaven, A Second Helping, and A Potluck of Murder and Recipes.

We took turns reading things that we are working on while the rest critiqued. It was a good day with good conversation. Hope to see you all next time!
