The Riverfront Readings series of poetry and fiction readings was started in Kansas City, Missouri in 1986 by Philip Miller and Donn Blevins. In those days, the location actually was in the Riverfront area, in the Kansas City Artists Coalition space. Now they are held at The Writers Place and in other Kansas City area locations. More information here.
Note: This is a rescheduling of the January reading that was cancelled due to weather.
Greg Cenac writes poetry and poetic narratives. His favorite poets are Raymond Carver and Robert Frost who he believes, along with Anton Chekov, have influenced his writing.
Mr. Cenac is an engineer by trade, but a poet at heart. He grew up in a French-speaking household in South Louisiana, lived his adult life in Alaska and in the Pacific Northwest, and then settled in Kansas City in 2000.
Along with poetry and literature, Mr. Cenac has a passion for Cajun cooking and ballroom dancing.
He thanks Sharon Eicker and David Arnold Hughes for their support of his writing.
