Poetry Workshop

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 ooetry workshop has continued to thrive.


This workshop will be a combination of writing from observation and memory. Participants will begin with quick writing exercises designed to open them to seeing the world that’s right in front of them,  then follow their instincts and intuition move more deeply into their work. Attendees will look at examples of other writers, read each other’s work, and spend lots of time writing. The goal is to start without judging and end up in a place that might surprise.




This workshop will be held at St Columba's Episcopal Church in Boothbay Harbor
