In 1997 Jean Webster, a poet and Lincoln Arts Festival board member established a poetry program in the region. The first year poets from New York presented a program. Their leadership
created an enthusiasm among local people who write poetry, and over the years the poetry workshop has continued to thrive.
The Annual Poetry Workshop will be held on September 14 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at St Columba's Episcopal Church, 32 Emery Lane, Boothbay Harbor. The poet
leading the workship is still to be announced. Stay tuned to learn more in the near future!
