Writing on the Land: Exploring the nature of the place we live with poet Verandah Porche

Wanted to share a quick post – we kicked off our fall residency with poet Verandah Porche yesterday and you can still join us in Bethlehem tonight or in Lincoln tomorrow if you’re interested in a place-based writing workshop for educators or in a (free) community poetry reading & scribe training where you’ll learn to record people’s stories as a “told poem”.

Fascinating method, fascinating poet, and all a part of our beginning efforts to capture northern New Hampshire’s relationship with the land through the arts. We’ll hold a wider community discussion on October 8th (Bethlehem) and 9th (Lincoln) as well, facilitated by North Country Listens.

Join us if you can, and spread the word – and thanks!

p.s. High school students who want to join our new youth arts program can email me or click here to learn more. We’d love to see some high school students trained as scribes too!
