Yes, autumn is pushing summer aside. With fall comes the end to the Brainerd Writers Alliance annual writing contest. Thank you to all who submitted and good luck!

Our September meeting will be a planning session for 2019. We’ll talk briefly about the 2018 changes and how they impacted the group. Most of the meeting time will be spent on member ideas for 2019. More growth? More events? Stay the same? Every member is asked to contribute their feedback on what they liked and didn’t like in 2018. Most important are ideas for next year. What do you want, as a member, from your organization?

In October we will have our annual writers’ conference with Erin Hart and book fair. Registration is now open.

Conference and Book Fair

Here’s to mulled cider, yard cleanup, and the first frost. We’ll all be busy as bees, right?
