Members of the Kansas City Latino Writer's Collective will lead a literary workshop Friday at the Finney County Historical Society Museum. Following the workshop, a poetry reading will be hosted at Garden City Arts.

Students in grades seven through 12 are invited to participate and learn how to improve their writing skills, particularly in poetry. The workshop will be from 1 to 4 p.m., and students are asked to pre-register as seating will be limited. Registration is available at Garden City Arts or through the students' English teacher at Horace Good and Kenneth Henderson middle schools and Garden City High School.

Students are asked to meet at the museum, 403 S. Fourth St., and bring at least two poems they have written. Following the workshop, students are invited to the gallery for a meal at no cost. A reading of poetry by Jose Faus and his students will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the gallery, 318 N. Main St., and is open to the public at a suggested donation of $5.
