FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky Writers' Day is April 24, and for Kentuckians who can't travel to Frankfort for the celebration and induction of Kentucky's next poet laureate, the Kentucky Arts Council has created a planning guide for recognizing Writers' Day in your own communities.

The guide is downloadable from the arts council website and is full of helpful ideas about how schools, libraries, businesses, colleges and universities and other organizations can celebrate Writers' Day locally.

"We want Writers' Day to be a celebration accessible to all Kentuckians," said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. "If you can't be with us in Frankfort, this planning guide is a wonderful tool to help personalize what the written word means in your own communities."

For more information on Kentucky Writers' Day, contact Tamara Coffey, arts council individual artist director, at 502-564-3757 ext. 479 or

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, fosters environments for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts. The arts council, along with the NEA, celebrates 50 years of service in 2015, which the arts council is recognizing as the Year of the Arts in Kentucky.
