Friday, June 19, there was an event in Dorset called Authors and Artists. We had a table for our group. Lots of people came through and it was great fun to see many of our writer friends. The artists (photography, jewelry, pottery, etc.) were outside in front of the business places. The authors were all inside the Sister Wolf Bookstore. It was an excellent event.


Sunday, July 12, will be our Jackpine Writers’ benefit golf tournament, held at Fair Havens Golf. We need to get more hole sponsors.

Check out University of Iowa Writing Workshops.

Saturday, Sept. 26, is our Book Release Party in Park Rapids MN.
