Workshop Description: Twiggs Gallery, in partnership with At Eagle Pond, Inc., invites poets and plein air painters to participate in a creative experience inspired by Eagle Pond Farm in Wilmot, NH, where Donald Hall and Jane Kenyon shared a writing life.

Participating poets will enjoy a house tour plus an all day writing workshop inside the poets’ home. Workshop instructor Laurie Zimmerman, poet and friend of Kenyon and Hall, will guide the poets to read, write, and reflect on Don’s and Jane’s work. Poets will be encouraged to contemplate place and poetry in their own lives. Open to all levels of poets. More about Laurie Zimmerman at lauriezimmermanpoetry.com

House Tour: Mary Lyn Ray, children’s book author, historian, and preservationist will give a behind-the-scenes tour of the house. Ray is a founder of At Eagle Pond, Inc., the nonprofit preserving the Wilmot farm. More about Mary Lyn Ray at marylynray.com
