September 2023 - Fall Membership Drive, Writers group

Setp 16-17 Larry Crist Kicks Off Our Fall Membership Drive

With our presentation of Larry Crist and his stories and poetry on September 16 and 17 Creekside Arts kicks off its fall membership drive.

Our goal: 30 new members!

The Larry Crist presentation, like most or our events, are free to members. Yearly membership dues are used to support the programs at Creekside Arts.

For as little as $25 you can become a member and enjoy the benefits of member-only activities all year long. You will be helping us continue to grow.

Then join us for an exciting afternoon of refreshments and poetry with Humboldt’s own Larry Crist, September 16 and 17 at 4:00pm.

Larry Crist lives and writes in Humboldt County, Trinidad,Ca, where he looks after his 91-year-old mother. He has two collections of his work available, Undertow Overtures and Alibi for the Scapegoat, (poems and stories.)
He has long been active in theatre and poetry readings, with numerous appearances at The Arcata Playhouse, Ferndale Rep., Del Arte, and, most recently at Creekside Arts, Synapsis and Exit Theatre. Larry’s most recent theatre role was Estrgon, in Waiting for Godot
