Writing Poems About People: A Generative Workshop

Poet Baron Wormser will lead this workshop on April 6. Writing about someone’s life in such a brief format as a poem presents a real challenge. We will look at several poems that accomplish this feat and use those poems as prompts to write our own poems. This workshop is open to anyone interested in writing poems.

A former Poet Laureate of Maine for six years, Wormser has taught widely. He has received the Frederick Bock Prize from Poetry and the Kathryn A. Morton Prize along with fellowships from Bread Loaf, the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. In 2000 he was writer in residence at the University of South Dakota. Wormser founded the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching and also the Frost Place Seminar.

Limit: 12 participants. Please register for this workshop by calling the library at 223-3338.

6:30–8 pm | Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street
