November Meeting Minutes 2022

Hello Everyone, Today we held our November meeting.

PRESENT: Sharon, Mike, Jan, Niomi, Dawn, Erin


In December, we will be sending out our call for submissions for Talking Stick 32. We need to do more work on our List with a Twist idea. We have discussed doing a fourth genre with its own prize. Writers can either submit for the regular genres and/or submit a poem or short story using the word lists. We could probably have two lists to choose from. We will work on this before the next meeting.


     Sharon and Tarah are working on Mike’s fifth book, this one on hunting. We just got back our second proof.

     Sharon is taking an online poetry class taught by LouAnn Muhm. This is a 10-week course using the Poetry Home Repair Manual by Ted Kooser.

     Erin has been using Two Sylvias Press for a new writing prompt each day.

     Mike has a lot of book-selling and reading events coming up in the next few months.

     No one was able to attend the last PRLAAC meeting. They have changed the meeting date and it hasn’t been working for any of our members.

     Dawn attended a workshop with Brian Malloy through Witness Writers.

We spent time reading things we have been working on. Then others critiqued. Two of us used the word list for this month. We do enjoy those word lists. We hope to see you all next time!
