Alice Derry will be Peninsula College’s 17th Writer in Residence this spring, April 25-27, 2017. During her residency, she will hold a number of forums with students, give readings from her work, conduct two workshops with Dr. Kate Reavey, and deliver a keynote address, “Let Poetry Delight You.” Details of the residency are listed on the accompanying brochure.
Derry and Professor Kate Reavey will team-up to help new writers generate new work and share with each other at a writer’s workshop on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the Peninsula College campus. Although the exercises will lean toward the writing of poetry, writers are invited to work in any genre. Please contact Matt Teorey at Peninsula College (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you are interested in participating. The workshop will be limited to 12 participants and still has openings.
A writer’s workshop will also be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. on the main campus. Derry and Reavey will help experienced writers improve their work. Derry will provide limited written feedback on each manuscript. Serious writers can view this workshop as a great free opportunity to work with two veteran poets to catapult their work forward. Whether publishing is your goal or not, understanding how your poems can be deeper, wider and more technically adept is always a boon. This workshop is full. (click here for the official flyer)
