January Meeting Minutes 2023

Hello Everyone,


Mike, Sharon, Ryan, Dawn, Erin, Marlys, Jan, Mary.


We recently sent out our call for submissions for Talking Stick 32. We will have our regular genres: poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction. We are adding another genre: creative twist. We have two word lists that writers can choose to use to create poems or stories. People seem to like this idea and have been commenting on it. One person asked if I could also send her the monthly words.


We are now done with Mike’s hunting book and Mike just received them. Mike treated us with snacks for today’s meeting. Thanks, Mike!

A reminder that the Cookhouse (at Jack Pines Resort where we had our Book Release Party) is open Thursday through Saturday 1-8 PM and Sunday Brunch 9-2 PM. Let’s go when we have a chance.


None of us were able to attend this month’s PRLAAC meeting. We want to get back into the habit of attending those as soon as we can.

Pencil to Paper is an online workshop with Candace Simar. This runs from 1-19-23 to 2-9-23.

Dawn is attending an interesting set of meetings for scientists and writers. They meet once a month by Zoom or in person and take field trips.

Go to UNDwritersconference.org for information on the University of North Dakota conference Wed.-Fri. March 23-25. It can be online or in person. Mary recommends this; she attends every year.

Everyone had something to read that they had been working on. Since we skipped our December meeting, it was just great to see everyone. It was one of those meetings where we all wanted to stay longer and keep on visiting! Hope to see you all next time.
