Leane Flynn, an English instructor at Central Lakes College, has had a poem published in Volume 21 of the literary journal “The Talking Stick” published by the Jackpine Writers’ Bloc based in Park Rapids and Menahga. “Late-Night Subway Song” by Flynn is part of the annual anthology. The publication, a collection of prose and poetry by writers with a connection to Minnesota, is an outgrowth of the writing community that since 1993 has been encouraging development of the craft among its members. It is an organization dedicated to celebration of life in North Central Minnesota. Leane taught full-time at the University of Minnesota-Duluth from 2004-08 and teaching at CLC since 2009. She earned her bachelor's degree in English from the University of Minnesota-Morris and received her master's in English from Northeastern university, Boston, Mass., in 2004. The Jackpine Writers' Bloc holds formal meetings on the third Sunday of each month from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at Bella Café, Park Rapids.
