4th Poetry of Place Workshop – October 21 – 23, 2016
Some of the poems that come out of this workshop have been published. Poetry of Place focuses on the place we happen to be – here on the Mussel Ridge Cove of Maine in Southern Penobscot Bay, but also metaphorically the place we’re each in. And we discover that place through our writing and discussing of poems. By Sunday morning we become a tribe of poets and work hard to craft our ideas, consider more formal issues like meter, line and stanza breaks, and other poetic devices.
If you haven’t worked with Barbara Helfgott Hyett before, please give it a try. For those of us who have, we know we will come away from this weekend with a poem, and a process for more work based on the Poetry of Place.
