Scott Rains is a lifelong purveyor of the newspaper arts and a poet of no real consequential regard. But he keeps writing because that’s what he does.
Born in Lawton, raised in Duncan and, after years of dreams of escape, he’s embraced his Southwest Oklahoma-“ness” and writes tales from the wildlands.
Enjoy an evening of poems, prose and polemic from the notebook of The Lawton Constitution’s “Jackhole Journalist” (& poet) in residence.
If you’ve ever wanted to know what goes into the daily newspaper you read or just want to pique the mind (or pick on) a working writer, here’s your chance! Question and answer and discussion about the craft, the biz and the state of the world encouraged.
There will be a short open mic, so bring your poems or songs. Also, the Cameron University chapter of Sigma Tau Delta will be collecting food for the food bank, so if you have a donation, bring it!
