Schoharie County Poet Katrinka Moore to Lead Workshop at W.Whitman Books April 20

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/12/24 | 4/12/24

Co-sponsored with Middleburgh Library, W.Whitman Books, located at 304 Main Street, Middleburgh, NY, will present local poet Katrinka Moore leading an entry-level workshop on creating poems, Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Katrinka Moore is the author of five books of poetry, including “Diminuendo” and “This is Not a Story”, winner of the New Women’s Voices Prize. Her work has appeared in numerous poetry anthologies and journals. She has facilitated poetry workshops locally and in New York City, New Jersey, and Texas. Katrinka lives in Manor Kill, NY.

“Poets from Julia Alvarez to William Wordsworth have often evoked a sense of place in their work”, says Moore. “A poem of place may be about your present home in this present time, or it may look to the past or the future. It may be set where you once lived, somewhere you’ve visited, or anywhere you imagine.”

In this two-hour workshop, participants will read poems of place and time, looking at how different poets approach different settings. Poems will be drawn from the work of Ada Limón, Robert Frost, Galway Kinnell, Seamus Heaney and Vievee Francis, among others, with a discussion of their use of poetic forms and devices. Participants will then write their own poems of place using guided prompts that Moore will provide.

This is a welcoming workshop open to beginners as well as more experienced writers. Participants will come together to read, write, and share poetry within a respectful and supportive atmosphere.
The workshop is free but advanced registration is required. Only10 seats are available, first come first served. Visit to register online, or register by calling (518) 827-3377 or in person at W.Whitman Books during regular store hours.
