Celebrate National Poetry Month with us! The online round table will be hosted by Ellen Sander, a former Belfast Poet Laureate and a widely published poet and journalist. Join fellow poets and poetry enthusiasts of all kinds in sharing a poem that's meaningful to you. Perhaps you've written a poem in response that you'd like to read. Bring a poem to share, or just listen and enjoy. We'll enthuse about poetry and examine and demystify the writing process. Presented in collaboration with the Belfast Poetry Woodshed, an active and long-standing midcoast poetry writing group. National Poetry Month was launched by the Academy of American Poets and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
