Poets Wanted!

J. Peter Bergman, author, poet, playwright and critic will be hosting a monthly poetry workshop at Herman Melville’s Arrowhead, beginning in late November. The group will meet once a month through June, 2015 for poetry challenges. A chapbook of new poetry may result from the work. Bergman ran a similar, successful workshop for six years at Edna St. Vincent Millay’s Steepletop which resulted in six books in the “zephyr” series. Public readings will follow in June.
Applicants should send three poems(no author’s names on them) for a blind selection along with a cover letter from the author. deadline for the applications is Wednesday, November 5th. Fee for the workshop is $55. All sessions will be mid-week evening gatherings. For more information contact Peter Bergman at 413.442.1793 × 14.
