BRAINERD — Heartland Poets, a local chapter of the League of Minnesota Poets, will meet from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 6, in the large room of the Brainerd Public Library.

Those attending are encouraged to bring poetry to read at the podium and make copies of poems-in-progress for review later in the meeting. A report will be shared regarding the 2023 Spring LOMP Meeting held recently in New Ulm.

There is time during the meeting to discuss opportunities for submissions to publications and contests.

This meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
