Workshops with Distinguished Poets
The Poetry Center offers Saturday morning workshops in conjunction with the Distinguished Poets Reading Series.
Over the past 35 years, the Poetry Center’s reading and workshop series has featured poet laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, inaugural poets and others of national and international reputation, such as Allen Ginsberg, Amiri Baraka, Lucille Clifton, Stanley Kunitz, Billy Collins, Marge Piercy, Mark Doty, Billy Collins, Dorianne Laux, Robert Sward, Martín Espada and Richard Blanco.
All workshops take place from 10 am to 12 pm at the Poetry Center (Hamilton Club building in Paterson), which is also the site of that day's Distinguished Poets reading in the afternoon.
Pre-registration is required and each workshop has a fee of $20. There is limited enrollment, so register early.
