CRCF grant to help aspiring Franklinville authors

OLEAN, N.Y., September 12, 2016—Aspiring authors will have access to new resources as part of a self-publishing author workshop at Franklinville’s Blount Library thanks to a Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation grant.

The grant, made possible by CRCF’s unrestricted Community Fund, helped to purchase two new laptops for author use and also fund other services like instruction and editing to help writers self-publish their books, according to CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit.

For just a $5 commitment fee, writers will have the opportunity to publish copies of their work, while participating in classes with instructors who’ve self-published their own work on The authors will receive one hard copy of the finished work, and one copy will enter library circulation, said Jessica Frank, Blount Library director.

“Aspiring authors working with our established cadre of self-published writers have an opportunity to give back to the local community,” said Ms. Frank. “In the process we mentor the next generation of writers. We unleash heretofore untapped talent and empower these authors to encourage others to do the same.”

If you’re interested in taking part in the program, contact the Blount Library at 716-676-5715. Classes begin this September.
