TALKING STICK 33:

We are receiving submissions. Be sure to get yours in. Deadline is March 1. We have our judges chosen and the instructor. Our workshop and book release party will be on Saturday Sept. 14, 2024 at Jackpines Resort near Osage.

WRITING EVENTS:

     Sharon has just finished an online poetry class Writing Ourselves Home with Caryn Miriam Goldberg. This was a good class with lots of good writers attending.

     Sharon has just finished editing Elisa’s new book. She and Tarah are almost done with Cindy’s book. They just received the file for Mike’s next book.

     No one was able to attend the Headwaters Arts Council meeting for February.

     Northwoods Writers Conference is coming up—in June in Bemidji.

     The University of ND Writers Conference is usually held at the end of March.

     The Rosemount event is coming up in March. Mike will be attending that to sell books. They have 42 writers lined up to sell books.

Most of us read things we have been working on and the rest critiqued. We are still using the monthly word prompts and several of us used the words in poems.

Hope to see you next time!
