F.C. Shultz, the Sentinel’s ‘Poet Laureate’
‘I’ve had a blast publishing so many wonderful local poets’
Congratulations to F.C. Shultz, of Webb City, for being one of the Missouri Arts Council’s Featured Artists for February.
He has published books of fiction, poetry and musings on writing. And you can watch him do a reading on his website, fcshultz.com.
It is because of F.C. that the Sentinel started publishing poetry last year. He wrote the call for submissions, came up with the submission guidelines and selects the poems that are published.
Poems are now being published on webbcity.net, Webb City’s ‘newspaper.’
