October Meeting Minutes 2021

Hello everyone,


Mike, Ryan, Dawn, Sharon, Jan.


The book has arrived. We hope to start mailing the books out soon. We are tentatively planning a virtual workshop with Candace Simar in February. In December, we will be sending out the next call for submissions. We hope 2022 will be more of a normal year for our group.


     Mike attended the last PRLAAC meeting. They discussed Art Beat, Blank Canvas, Art Leap, the sculpture trail, events at the Armory, the mural project at Pioneer Park. Mike told them about TS30.

     Cate Belleveau has a book release and signing on Friday, October 29 at 3:30-6 at Four Pines Bookstore in Bemidji. Her book is Kayak Cate. Another book signing is Saturday October 30 from 10:30 to 1. She has a presentation at the Beltrami Co Historical Society from 2-3 on Saturday.

     Ryan is working on his novel. Jan is working on her next poetry book. Mike is thinking about doing a special hardcover edition of his first book. Sharon is working on her fourth poetry book.

Only one person had brought something to read—usually nearly all of us do. We also spent time discussing book titles and publishing. We had a quiet and relaxed meeting, always happy to spend time together.
