Join this ESWA discussion group! We study a well-known poet each month, exploring their work independently, then meet on Zoom for coffee, share our favorite poems by that poet, and discuss their work.
Our April discussion focuses on the work of Salisbury Poet-in-Residence, Christopher Salerno, and will be facilitated by ESWA President, Tara A. Elliott.
A excerpt from Chris's latest book, The Man Grave, will be sent to all who register.
Programming for this event was provided by generous grants from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore and MD Humanities. Further support was provided by Eastern Shore Writers Association and Maryland Writers Association in partnership with The City of Salisbury, Maryland. This event is brought to you on Zoom by Eastern Shore Writers Association.
