Award-winning poets Will Nixon of Woodstock and Matthew J. Spireng of Lomontville present Poetry: It's Natural! -- workshops and readings that explore the connection between the natural world and the art of poetry on Saturday, April 18 at the Tivoli Free Library. Matt is a wonderful poet and a longtime friend (and I've blogged about him before).
Here is the schedule for the day:
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Spireng will kick off the day with a workshop, “Nurturing Nature,” that looks at the making of poems of nature, where they come from, what goes into them, where they go, and how to cultivate and nourish them so they do not die on the vine.
1-2 p.m. Nixon will lead a “Search and Create Workshop” in which participants will choose an object from nature about which to compose a poem.
3:30 p.m. Spireng and Nixon will read from their work.
