The Cottonport Project is the Topic at the Next Chautauqua Nexus

This week's Chautauqua Nexus at the University of Louisiana at Monroe will feature speaker Bob Teague on "The Cottonport Project". It is set for Friday, Oct. 9th at 4:30 p.m. on the sixth floor of the library.

The Chautauqua Nexus web site has the following information about the upcoming talk: "The Cottonport Project," which started with two area writers looking for a forum for their work and the work of other area artists, has evolved over the past year into a hothouse for creativity in northeastern Louisiana. The weekly reading series, while not a school in the traditional artistic sense of the word, has provided fertile ground for the cross-pollination of forms, ideas and styles. The end goal of the project is to build a framework for artistic voices that represent the cultures and peoples of northeastern Louisiana. It has already expanded from it's coffeehouse birthplace into the streets with a quarterly magazine, regular art happenings, members in various stages of publication, and most importantly several non-writers who have been inspired to explore the art form as writers themselves."
