We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our good friend & long-time QC radio personality Max Molleston.

Max served on the MWC Board of Directors for many years, including as President, and directed the Mississippi Valley Poetry Contest for decades. He was always such a champion of poetry and writing, so generous with his time, his effort, and his own writing (see the image below of Max’s poem “Remembering” which he was fond of sharing).

His personality was always effervescent & positive, and his energy would lift any room. It is sure to say that MWC would not be where it is today without the contributions Max made, and we will always be grateful for the lasting contributions he made to writing in our community. He will be dearly missed.
