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 poetry workshop has continued to thrive.
Although a workshop is not planned for the summer of 2024, in recent years workshops have been led by Betsy Sholl, Poet Laureate of Maine 2006 - 2011 and winner of Maine's Literary Award for Poetry in 2015; Stuart Kestenbaum, 2020 Poet Laureate of Maine; Richard Blanco, inaugural poet at Obama's second innauguration; Carol Bachofner, Poet Laureate of Rockland, Maine 2012 - 2016; and J. Barrie Shepherd, 2006 winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Presbyterian Writers' Guild.
