Annual Poetry Workshop

Guest Poet Lee Sharkey
YMCA's McEvoy Lodge at Camp Knickerbocker, Boothbay

Poet, Lee Sharkey

     Maine poet and editor Lee Sharkey will lead a one-day poetry writing workshop, “Poems in Conversation,” on Saturday, September 19, from 9:30-4:00 at Camp Knickerbocker, 33 Country Club Rd., Boothbay Harbor. The workshop is an annual feature of the Lincoln Arts Festival.


Rather than focus on specific aspects of craft, the workshop will engage participants in a series of questions designed to inspire writing and give them new perspectives on their work: What makes a poem matter? What concerns or obsessions drive our poems? How do poems listen?  How do our poems further the cultural conversation poetry fosters?


Sharkey is the author of Calendars of Fire (Tupelo, 2013), A Darker, Sweeter String (Off the Grid, 2008), and eight earlier full-length poetry collections and chapbooks. Her work has appeared in Crazyhorse, FIELD, Kenyon Review, Massachusetts Review, Nimrod, Pleiades, The Seattle Review, and many other literary journals. She is the recipient of the Abraham Sutzkever Centennial Translation Prize, the Maine Arts Commission’s Fellowship in Literary Arts, the Shadowgraph Poetry Prize, and Zone 3’s Rainmaker Award in Poetry. She is a Senior Editor of the Beloit Poetry Journal.


The fee for the workshop is $60. To reserve a place, contact Jean Webster at Checks should be made out to Lincoln Arts Festival, and can be mailed to Jean Webster, P.O. Box 352, East Boothbay, Me 04544.
