Group seeking literacy volunteers

OVER-THE-RHINE - InkTank is hosting a soup social to introduce new programs designed to encourage creative expression and promote literacy. The free event will take place from 7-9 p.m. Thursday at the Emanuel Community Center, 1308 Race St., InkTank's partner in a children's writing program. In addition to the opportunity to mingle with many of Cincinnati's talented writers, InkTank representatives will offer short presentations on eight new writing programs. At the social, InkTank hopes to sign up volunteers for adult writing groups and after-school programs for children ages 8-12. InkTank, a local non-profit organization, was recently formed with the intent to create a positive impact on Cincinnati neighborhoods through writing-based initiatives.
