Poetry Writing Workshop with Jim Haba

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library
Sat, October 31, 2015, 1:00 pm

Brought back by popular demand, Jim Haba is conducting a fourth poetry writing workshop on the first day of spring! At this session there will be an opportunity to write short pieces. New poets are invited to join the workshop! As the founding Poetry Director of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Jim Haba created and developed the Foundation’s biennial Poetry Festival and its extensive Poetry in the Schools Program (1986-2008). He also contributed to many NPR and PBS programs focused on early Festivals, including three major PBS series with Bill Moyers. In 1995 he edited the best-selling book The Language of Life, which accompanied two of these series. His work on behalf of the poetry community earned him The Elizabeth Kray Award from Poets House in 2000 and The Paterson Literary Review Award, for lifetime service to literature, in 2011. His own poems earned him a New Poets of the Delaware Valley award (1984) and a Poetry Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (1985). His chapbooks Thirty-One Poems and Love Poems appeared in 2006. Samples of his work as a visual artist can be seen on his website: www.jimhaba.com. To register for the poetry writing workshop call 732-572-2750 or go to the front desk.
