Full Class for Will Wright's Poetry workshop

Writers Circle hosted Will Wright, poet, editor, and more, from the Atlanta area. We had a full class of poets, some who had never published their work and some with awards and a long history of publications.


The students participated, asked questions and presented wonderful discussion on the sheaf of poems Will gave us to read and talk about.

The young, but experienced poet, had several of his collections with him and also the latest anthology he has published.
I chose his first collection, Dark Orchard, winner of 2005 Texas Review Breakthrough Poetry Contest and Night Field Anecdote, published by Louisiana Literature Press. Both books are acclaimed by outstanding poets and Will is compared with Theadore Roethke and Robert Penn Warren.Wright co-edits an anthology series The Southern Poetry Anthology. 

We will certainly ask Will Wright to come back to Writers Circle next year.
