Local writers win again

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Cheri Quattrochi and C.J. Clarke charged forward with their banners unfurled, demonstrating superior writing skills in both poetry and prose at the Sharp County fair this year. Both are members of the Cherokee Village Writers Guild.

Quattrochi was named Grand Champion for her poem, "Gazing, Blazing, Praising," which was in iambic pentameter. She also received a blue ribbon for another piece of poetry, for a haiku and for a short story. She took home red ribbons for an essay, a win in the wild card category, a free verse poem, and in children's poetry. Additionally, she received a white ribbon for rhymed verse.

C.J. Clarke received a first place blue ribbon in the story division, and a white ribbon for her poem.

The Cherokee Writers Guild meets at the Hardy Library on the fourth Tuesday of each month, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is no membership fee or club dues. Anyone wishing to learn more about writing or publishing is welcome to attend. If you would like to be a published writer, or have aspirations to write your memoirs, a novel, or poetry, you are urged to attend a meeting.
