LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lake County Arts Council has successfully renewed a grant that supports the free public writing workshop offered monthly in Lakeport.
The workshops take place beginning at 6:30 p.m. the first Thursday of each month at the Main Street Art Gallery, 325 N. Main St.
This grant allows Poets and Writers, a national organization that supports working writers, to fund former Lake County Poet Laureate Mary McMillan who facilitates the workshop.
Residents from all over Lake County attend the Writers Circle and join other writers who share memoirs, fiction, essays or poems they have written – or just listen and get inspired.
Aged 19 to 90, some people come only one or two times, and others show up every month.
Poets and Writers provides this funding through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation.
