The Jackpine Writers’ Bloc has been in existence since 1993. They are a group of local writers mainly centered in the Menahga/Park Rapids area. The group began publishing The Talking Stick in 1995. They began with just publishing writers in our local area but now have expanded to the whole state of MN or anyone with a close connection to MN. Usually they published one per year but sometimes two. In 2018 they published Volume 27 of The Talking Stick. www.jackpinewriters.com Books are for sale on our website and on Amazon.
