Suffolk Poetry Center Workshop Series, Kickoff with Fred Marchant

  • Suffolk Poetry Center 73 Tremont Street Boston, MA, 02108 United States (map)

The Suffolk Poetry Center is hosting Warrior Writers for a series of workshops on the art of poetry this fall. These monthly generative writing workshops are designed for veterans to record memories and stories from thier times in military service and/or at war. Of course attendees are welcome to write about other things. If you have never experienced military service or warfare, you're welcome to come. Bring a veteran with you.

Fred Marchant will be leading our opening workshop. Marchant served in the Marine Corps, and he was one of the first officers to be honorably discharged as a concientious objector during Vietnam. He is the author of several books of poetry, including his latest "Said, Not Said," published this past spring. 

The next two workshops are also scheduled on Wenesdays:
October 18th, 6-8p
November 15th, 6-8p

The series will close with a public performance. Stay tuned for details.
