Winona Writers Group – April Virtual Meeting
Friday | April 9 | 3:30-5:30pm
Local writers are invited to bring a short piece of your writing to share with us. As always, feel free to use these prompts, change them, or ignore them and write your own idea. For this meeting, we will not have printed copies of each other's work, but if you have a google doc or word doc, it may be possible to share it digitally during the meeting. We will read aloud, then share verbal comments and suggestions.

April Jazz Jam
Sunday | April 18 | 2:30-5:30pm
Over the past four years, the monthly Jazz Jams at Island City Brewing Company have offered an afternoon of family-friendly fun and a chance for area musicians to jam with the H3O Jazz Trio.
In April, the Jazz Jam will introduce a whole new dimension of community involvement. H3O Jazz Trio and Island City Brewing Company will use the monthly event to support area non-profits. H3O will contribute all donations (aka tips) received during the afternoon. Island City and H3O will also match the total amount collected — tripling everyone’s contributions!
April’s non-profit recipient will be Winona Volunteer Services, to assist them as they wrap up the annual MN FoodShare drive.
The April Jazz Jam will be held on Island City’s patio and, for the first since last summer, H3O Jazz Trio will welcome back any and all who want to sit in with the band. Singers will need to wear masks and all equipment will be sanitized between each performer. Learn more.
