Free Poetry Workshop

If you’re looking for something to do this week, this Tuesday, at 6 p.m., I’m teaching a free poetry workshop at the Osterhout Library, 71 S. Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre. The workshop will focus on poetry of place and home.  The idea of home and place has been central to the work of several well-known poets. Robert Frost often wrote about New England farm land. Our current Poet Laureate Philip Levine has made his hometown of Detroit a key focus to his work. During this workshop, we’ll look at how poets depict home and place in their work and write about our own hometowns.
