Annual Liz Caile Contest and Writing Workshop

Sponsored by the Mountain Forum for Peace and the Nederland Community Library.
The 2017 Liz Caile Contest will culminate in an evening of art and writing presented at Salto on Thursday, November 9th from 5:30 - 8 pm. This event is open to all ages (child to adult). The theme for this year's contest is "How does water connect us?" in honor of Liz Caile and her fierce commitment to peace and protecting the environment.

An exciting addition to the contest this year includes two writing workshops lead by writer and editor, Krista Crabtree. These workshops are open to students (grades 3-5 and grades 6-12) and will be held at the Nederland Community Library on two consecutive Mondays. Krista will assist students in honing their writing skills and developing their stories or poems for the contest. She will also offer tips for revision and public reading in preparation for the contest held at Salto on 11/9.
