On Tuesday, February 27 at 4:00p.m. the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild will receive a proclamation from the City of Eau Claire in recognition for the Guild’s commitment to the literary arts. “Eau Claire values all the writers who live and work among us because they open our minds to what is familiar and challenge us to understand what is different,” said Council President Kerry Kincaid. “I am pleased to help elevate the craft to its rightful place among the arts.”
Since its founding in February of 2016, the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild has worked hard to provide an array of high-impact educational opportunities for residents of the Chippewa Valley and beyond. By way of writers’ retreats, craft talks, a robust newsletter, and other events, the Guild has continued to showcase the vibrancy of our region’s literary community.
“It’s an honor to receive formal recognition from the City of Eau Claire,” said Guild executive director B.J. Hollars. “This region’s support for the arts is well-known, and by working closely with city officials, I’m certain the arts can continue its upward trajectory.”
