Heartland Poets to meet Friday in Brainerd

Heartland Poets, a local chapter of the League of Minnesota Poets, will meet from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, in the large room of the Brainerd Public Library.

Bring a favorite poem to read at the 6 p.m. informal poetry reading. Suz Wipperling will emcee this. Afterward, a short business meeting will be held to discuss the upcoming League of Minnesota Poet’s Fall Conference, which will be held in October in Chaska.

Go to for details and registration about the conference.

After this, writers who wish to share a poem-in-progress may do this by bringing copies of the poems so that others may more fully appreciate your effort.

This meeting is free and open to the public.
