Saturday, June 19

10:00–1:00 pm

Presenter: Christine Swanberg

Join Rockford’s First Official Poet Laureate, Christine Swanberg, as she shares some of the poems that inspired and shaped her writing:  Shakespeare, Rosetti, the Romantics, Whitman, Dickinson, Sandburg, Brooks, the Beats, Collins, Mueller, Angelou, Oliver, and others, from formal verse to free verse and back. This is not a writing workshop per se but a discussion. Participants may bring their favorite poem if they like but it is not required. They are encouraged to bring an old or new poem of their own to the next workshop.  Also bring a snack or lunch for noon break, and dress for the weather!
