Mancos resident awarded CARP grant

Mancos poet and writer Lisa C. Taylor has been awarded a Colorado Creative Corps American Rescue Plan grant by the Colorado Creative Industries and National Endowment for the Arts.

The grant will fund the development of a program she’s calling “Writing for Resilience.” The program will be executed in partnership with the Creative District, and the Mancos Library and its youth director, Jenni Kitchen.

“Writing for Resilience” will offer Mancos teens the opportunity to write and perform their poetry and work with area artists to create poetry broadsides.

Taylor and Kitchen will also offer after school poetry brainstorming and writing sessions every Tuesday at 4:30 from Jan. 25 to May.

For more information, contact Lisa C. Taylor at whitewaterwriting@gmail.com or Jenni Kitchen at jkitchen@mancoslibrary.org.
