Blue Mountain Writers

Hello, Blue Mountain Writers. I would like to share two opportunities with you:
  1. The Observer is seeking to expand the Go Magazine with arts-event reviews, book reviews, and features on local artists/writers. Of course these contributions would be without pay, but they might be good experience and might enhance the dialogue about writing and literature in the region. I’d be particularly interested in growing a pool of features about local writers that editors might insert when needed in order to promote local writers’ work. If you’re interested in proposing to write stories, you might contact Editor Glenn Rabinowitz with your ideas at (541) 963-3161 or news@lagrandeobserver.com. If you’re interested in working on features of local writers, let me know, and maybe we can think how to get something like that underway.
  2. I checked out Joe Beans (1009 Adams Ave.) as a site for a critique group. The owners would be fine with us meeting there, and the space looks like it could accommodate a group without too much noise. Is anyone interested in meeting on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10 AM? If I get some interested folks, I’ll send another email confirming the date and time.Hope you’re all doing well! Nancy nknowles@eou.edu
