Calling all local artists
January 2, 2014
The Newcastle Library is seeking local authors, poets, photographers and artists for a yet-to-be-determined program celebrating their works.
Vicki Heck, Newcastle’s adult services librarian, is hoping to find creatively inclined residents from Newcastle, Renton and South Bellevue to feature in library programming.
For example, Heck is planning a March 15 Newcastle Library author’s program, where local writers will get a chance to talk about their books and their inspirations, and sell their works to audience members.
Newcastle authors Pat Detmer and Dana Sullivan have already participated in the early planning stages of such an event. Self-published authors are also welcomed.
Heck is also kicking around ideas to host a gallery open house with visual art, photography and poetry from children, teens and adults, or plan an open-mic session for poets and authors to share their works.
