Staten Island Art

Recently a small group of writers and literary organization administrators gathered at 4 St. Paul’s Café & Gallery for a great and rare opportunity. Monica Valenzuela, Director of Development and Community Programming at the Council on the Arts and Humanities for Staten Island (COAHSI), hosted a free, informal information session specifically geared toward the emerging literary artists and writers in our area.

As part of COAHSI’s mission, Ms. Valenzuela seeks to serve individual artists by providing information on resources to help further their artistic endeavors. On January 10th the writers in attendance were treated not only to a morning with Ms. Valenzuela but an up close and personal meeting with Eleanor Savage, a Program Officer at the Jerome Foundation.
