May Writers’ Meeting

Hi Everyone,

Today we held our May meeting. Our June meeting will be on Sunday, 06-15-14, at Bella Caffe in Park Rapids MN from 12:30 to 3 PM.

PRESENT: Sharon, Jerry, Lorelei, Deb

TALKING STICK: We are currently editing Talking Stick 23. We have not decided on a cover or a subtitle yet.

RECENT EVENTS: Deb has a young writers’ group in Pine River. She showed us some of the books she has had printed for them. At the next meeting, we hope to hear about the Billy Collins event on April 29.

PLACES TO SUBMIT: Lake Region Review, June 1 deadline.

BOOKS TO READ: Jerry has been reading and enjoying books with collections of stories. Vacationland by Sarah Stonich. Bark by Laurie Moore and another book by George Saunders.

We had a short meeting today. Only one person brought something to read. Evidently, people wanted to be outside enjoying the weather today! We did another writing exercise and were pleasantly surprised at what we came up with.

Hope to see you next time!
