I’m so excited to leave for my artist-in-residency on Mackinac Island on Monday, June 10! This is an incredible honor to be chosen by the Mackinac State Historic Parks for their inaugural residency program. I’m really looking forward to spending dedicated time on my manuscript, as well as working with the Mackinac Arts Council to provide both a poetry workshop and a public reading during my stay on the island.
The workshop, entitled “Island Time,” will focus on the history, geology, and natural themes of the island, and we’ll explore both formal and free verse poetry. All experience levels are welcome! It will take place on June 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the Visitor’s Center, conference room 256.
The public reading will feature selections that I will write during my residency (with a health dose of old favorites, too) and it will take place on June 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the same venue as the workshop.
Come and visit if you’re in the area!
