NCLAC looking for local authors

The North Central Louisiana Arts Council, a not for profit arts agency located in Ruston LA, is currently seeking out published authors from North Louisiana  who would like to do a public reading of their work.  These readings will be part of our Cultural Economy Initiative and will take place with our community partner, The Frothy Monkey Coffee House in Ruston, on a quarterly basis.    The Cultural Economy Initiative focus is to build our cultural economy in the following ways: turning creativity into sales, marketing our strengths, making culture an industry, and growing a cultural destination. CEI programs invest in the economic future of our community.  We strive to do this by helping provide artists a venue to sell their work while promoting the services of our host companies.

Those interested should email or mail a resume and writing sample to the following address: or PO Box 911, Ruston, LA 71273.  Please list “Monkey Project” as subject line of all e-mails or Attn: Monkey Project on all mailed correspondence.  Deadline for submissions is Friday, March 4th at 5pm.   For more information or questions please call 255-1450 or email
