Poet's hard work pays off

Associated Press

COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. - Creating art takes the right combination of technical skill and life experience.

Avon poet Mark Conway knows this.

After earning a Master of Fine Arts at Bennington College in Vermont, working as a teacher in Canada and Italy, driving a cab, working as a journalist and raising a family, Conway is ready for that hard work to pay off.

In March, Conway received a $25,000 McKnight Artist Fellowship for Writers, and he's working on a book of poetry.
