Shake Rag Alley Welcomes 2017 Winter Writers Series

Kick Off Event:

Wednesday, January 18th @ 7pm

Shake Rag Alley’s Lind Pavilion
411 Commerce St.
Mineral Point, WI 53565



Since 2011 Shake Rag Alley has partnered with the Council for Wisconsin Writers (CWW), Wisconsin People & Ideas, and the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission through the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters to offer week-long residencies to their annual writing contest winners. During their stay, the writers participate in workshops, readings and community outreach activities.

The series will kick off on Wednesday, January 18 with the 2016 winner of the Wisconsin People and Ideas poetry contest, Karen Loeb. When asked to describe what we can expect, Karen wrote, 'My presentation will be a craft talk, where I'll read some poetry and fiction and talk about how I make decisions about which genre to write in. I will also welcome questions from people in the audience.' Samples of her work, including her award winning poem "In the Science Museum," can be found at https://wisconsinacademy.org/contributor/karen-loeb.

This event takes place at 7pm at Shake Rag Alley’s Lind Pavilion, located at 411 Commerce St. Participation is free and no registration is required.
