Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award Ray McNiece

Lifetime Achievement Award Ray McNiece


Poet and director of Twelve Literary Daniel Gray-Kontar, in presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to
poet Ray McNiece recalled their time together in 1994, when they both were on a team representing Cleveland at the National Poetry Slam Championship, and won—as Gray-Kontar noted—the first national championship for Cleveland since the Cleveland Browns, 30 years earlier. He recalled the so-very-Cleveland opening line from McNiece’s poem Grandfather’s Breath: “You work. You work, Buddy. You work.”
McNiece could be heard performing that poem in coffee shops and much larger stages all those years ago. All the people receiving recognition in the evening’s ceremony would know the truth of that line.

HEIGHTS ARTS NAMES RAY MCNIECE
AS 10TH CLEVELAND HEIGHTS POET LAUREATE

Ray at Poet Laureate Award Ceremony


       In his announcement of his new role, McNiece said, “Yesterday I posted a tribute to my mother and it really was her encouragement to follow my dreams to be a poet (my immigrant Grandparents were drilling “Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer” in my head all through my childhood) that has brought me here. That, and the love of poetry instilled by my father’s mother Zelma McNiece Cline, who always told me if you learn a poem by heart it lives with you your whole life!”

       McNiece is known for his collaborations with other poets, spoken word artists and musicians, so he’s ideally suited to expand the poet laureate role in multiple ways and he is bursting with ideas.
