PERRY -- Writer Chuck Davenport has received a community arts grant for a series of creative writing workshops for Wyoming County poets 13 through 19 years old. He was sponsored by Immanuel United Church of Christ. The workshop will meet at 4 p.m. from July 2 through Aug. 6 in Cordelia A. Greene Library, Route 39, Castile.
Organizers said the workshop encourages writers to use conventional techniques while pushing their own poetic limits. The workshop also will help writers prepare pieces for submission. The workshops will culminate in a "Poetry Jam," to be scheduled. Examples of work should be brought to the first session.
Space is limited, with a maximum of 15 students for the session. For information, contact Davenport at (585) 584-8269 or by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
