The destination is sometimes known, but the journey to get there is a whole other story, and that’s what Laramie County Community College’s Foundation Center hopes to show writers at its 11th annual Literary Connection.
Taking place Oct. 2-3 in the college’s Union Pacific Centennial Room 129/130 in the Center for Conferences and Institutes building by emcee Jason Pasqua, the gathering will unite readers and writers who love and are inspired by the literary arts. The guest authors this year, Allen Kurzwell and George Bilgere, will participate through a workshop and lecture.
The workshop, taking place from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, will include a free breakfast before Kurzwell, Bilgere and participants go through technique-focused exercises, learning how to structure certain types of stories so that they can express and interpret their ideas to other readers and writers.
“We don’t want people to think that it’s specifically designed for those who want to write a book or get one published,” Director of Alumni Affairs and Event Planning Lisa Trimble said, “but for those who love to read and want to learn more of the craft of writing.”
The lecture will take place from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 The non-student registration fee is $30 and $5 for students, staff and faculty, which also includes lunch. Followed by a book signing, the lecture will venture through each writer’s journey into the literary arts and may include reading from their current books.

'Portals to Kairos' connects students to art
Art galleries are ways artists can deliver creative interpretations and show the interesting ways they express themselves through their work but what Laramie County Community College’s Ed and Caren Murray Art Series will present in its up-and-coming art gallery series is an artist who wants to do more than that—she wants to show what her work can offer her audience.
Director of alumni affairs and event planning Lisa Trimble said, “We are very excited to have an individual of such high caliber visit LCCC.”
The nationally known artist, Natalia Wróbel, who the Murray family has chosen to present in their art series, will showcase her event titled “Portals to Kairos” in the Science Center Room 121 from Oct. 19–Nov. 23.
In the series, Wróbel portrays what the mind experiences in meditation, prayer and relaxed attentiveness by drawing from images of neural networks and capturing these imagined worlds suspended in time. Painting for Wróbel is a moving meditation and a way to ignite a mode of being and entering into Kairos, or the “time in between,” Wróbel said of the Greek word meaning “the supreme moment.”
Wróbel, a Polish-American, grew up in Warsaw, Poland, and La Jolla, California, and has lived most of her adult life in New England. In preschool she outlined her body in black ink, and since then, she has loved to use art as a way to visually depict an experience and spiritual expression.
“Sometimes a simple black line on paper can be the most satisfying expression.” Wróbel said of ink, a medium she’s used since age three.
