The Wyoming Arts Council on Wednesday announced the winners of the 2017 Blanchan/Doubleday Awards. Jayme Feary of Jackson received the nod for best writing inspired by nature. Past participants must remember Jayme’s cowboy poetry walks up Cache Creek in the evening with nature writer Susan Marsh. Wine and cheese was served up as well as poetry and bits about nature on those evening outings. Of course there were also mosquitoes and the chuckwagon entertainment to grab folks’ attention. He also served as our volunteer coordinator for a couple of years and offered up critiques and workshops. Congratulations to Jayme for this recognition. We look forward to publication of a full-length book.
