About the Hunterdon Poets Workshop
“It is necessary to any originality to have the courage to be an amateur.” ~Wallace Stevens
“Imagination is the instrument of compassion.” ~Zbigniew Herbert
The Hunterdon Poets Workshop is a monthly (September-May) Sunday afternoon gathering of published and emerging writers in our community. Our dialogue on poetry crosses generations and cultures, as participants range in age from the early 20s to the mid-90s. Many bring drafts of poems to share or come for a poetry prompt. The workshop size is limited to eight, and members are always thoughtful and encouraging. It’s a privilege for me to help nurture the voices of talented poets and writers in our Workshop.
