The Jackpine Writers’ Bloc is an active writing group in north central Minnesota, in existence since 1993. Our group kicks off each year by opening up for submissions to the next Talking Stick Book. These books are collections of poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction submitted by Minnesota writers.

During each year, we put on writing workshops, prepare the book, and put on an annual book release party where we pay out prize money for the top two places in each of the three writing categories. We continually look for new ways to entertain and inspire writers and fellow artists.

We want to thank the writing and arts community for their continued enthusiasm for our group and our books. Bring your friends to our workshops and parties.

For many years, we supported ourselves with donations, book sales, and a few grants. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult for us to fund our books. Without your support and donations, there would be no Jackpine Writers’ Bloc and no Talking Stick books. Remember, your tax donation is tax deductible. We are a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.
