Virtual Annual Membership Event

Our Annual Membership Event goes on!

We may not be able to gather in person, but we are planning the same great event for our members.

Join us Saturday, May 22 at 10:00am

We are planning a morning of inspiration and comradery, including:

  • Keynote speaker Rachael Hanel
  • Readings from our Writing Contest winners
  • A review of the year just completed
  • A preview of events planned for the year to come
  • Drawings for fabulous prizes, meant just for writers (you must be virtually present to win)

Come and network with other writers from the comfort of your own home!

To register, email and we will send you a Zoom link.

You must be a member of Lake Superior Writers to attend. If you haven’t joined or renewed your membership yet, this is a great time to do so! Click here to join online or mail in your membership form. We would love to have you!
