The Blue Mound Writers Series annual gathering is a favorite of writers and musicians (and high on my list!). It is likely the only venue the the U.S. where musicians can see 3 states while performing on stage. This event has been held at Blue Mounds State Park Interpretive Center, the highest elevation in southwest Minnesota.
The purpose and mission of the Blue Mound Writers Series is to support and encourage authors and writers in the midwest region. Ben Vander Kooi, Fred Manfred Jr. and the Blue Mound State Park should receive accolades for their rare insight, in creating projects that are of mutual benefit.
Tour the deep south of Minnesota some Saturday afternoon during the summer, stop and visit the Brandenburg Gallery and then spend your evening at the Writers Series. The Blue Mound Writers Series is a weekend you will surely remember.
