Tracey's New Blog

Tracey has started a blog, "Black Voices of Oshkosh" at

"Black Voices of Oshkosh is a blog designed to engage the black people in Oshkosh, Wisconsin or anywhere.

Its overall goal is to start a long overdue and frank conversation about unity, race relations, black history, employment, entrepreneurship and more. It is not designed to separate people. It is designed to bring people together by engaging in meaningful dialog about our community’s issues from our perspective.

The topics here are varying and include politics, health, community news, and current events, to name a few."

Good work, Tracey!

Meeting Reminder

Just a reminder that the Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 in the lower level meeting room of the Oshkosh Public Library. Kristen is the Author Spotlight.

Other news: The Lakefly Literary Conference website is up and running! You can find it at - suggestions for more content and improvements are welcome. We're also on Facebook and Twitter.

Also, today I picked up "save the date" postcards that need to get out. I was hoping to set up a working meeting at the New Moon on Thursday but they have musical entertainment that night. Kristen's spotlight is short so if there are no objections, I thought we could work on it at our Saturday meeting. To that end, please think about magazines, organizations, etc. where we need to send one. I have already send them out the 30  libraries in the Winnefox Library System.
