Betsy Sholl, award-winning author of eight poetry collections and a former Poet Laureate of Maine, is offering a special two-part poetry and writing workshop at Thomas Memorial Library! The first session will take place on the 12th of August, followed by the second and final session on the 19th.

This will be a fun and very humane workshop focused primarily around generating new material and examining some of our favorite writers and what makes them so appealing. This is for all levels of experience, and refreshments will be provided.
