Update on Talking Gourds programs for Fall 2023 & Winter 2024:

FISCHER CANTOR
We have announced the Fischer and Cantor Prize winners. Feedback in those two contests will take a little more time with the loss of staff, but we will be working on them this winter.

 

BARDIC TRAILS
Our Bardic Trails zoom series continues at the Wilkinson Public Library in Telluride on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 pm. The reading is free and participants are encouraged to bring a poem to share but one must register with the Wilkinson Public Library to attend the zoom.

 

STORIES & POEMS: NEW LIVE SERIES
We’ve started a new live series, Stories & Poems, at the Lone Cone Library in Norwood on the third Wednesday of every month at 6pm.

 

CHAMBERLAIN AWARD
We awarded the 2023 Karen Chamberlain Lifetime Achievement Award to Marilyn Krysl of CU Denver in absentia at the Mountain Words Literary Festival in Crested Butte this past spring.

 

POET LAUREATES
We awarded the Western Slope Poet Laureate title (2023-24) to Wendy Videlock at a ceremony at the Art Center in Grand Junction this spring, as well as honoring the past laureate L. Luis Lopez. Wendy has taken off with the honor and begun numerous poetry initiatives throughout the Grand Valley.

 

OTHER UPDATES
We are still working to update our web pages now that the mad rush of summer is over. Stay tuned for more to come!
