NORWICH – The Chenango Arts Council will welcome internationally renowned poet Craiz Czury on Sunday, March 10, who will host a Life Writing Workshop at CAC before presenting a poetry reading.
Czury has been studying poetry and publishing books of poetry for over 40 years, as well as teaching people from all walks of life to write poetry for over three decades.
In his youth, Czury left the coal region of Pennsylvania to hitchhike across the country for 15 years. Since then, he has been the featured poet at the International Poetry Festival and has authored over 20 books of poetry.
“Poetry is not a spectator sport,” Czury said in a press release, which further states he manages to coax words out of people that come from places that only they know: their experiences, their inheritances of culture and family environment, and their own secret spaces.
