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.

The Jackson Hole Writers Conference is a production of Jackson Hole Writers, a not-for-profit organization that fosters the craft of writing by engaging writers from around the world and in this Wyoming community. Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature, and the WAC is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Jackson Hole Writers also receives funding for other programming from Center of Wonder through its C3 grants and Arts For All, from a Wyoming Humanities Council ThinkWY grant, and from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. We appreciate every one of these public agencies as well as support from folks like you.
