Verandah Porche Writing on the Land: Exploring the Nature of the Place We Live

February 7th, 2013 by Michael

The National Writing Project in New Hampshire is pleased to announce that we will be co-sponsoring a  series of programs with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire featuring Vermont poet, Verandah Porche.  These programs will take place at various locations from Lincoln to Lancaster, including a teacher workshop at Lin-Wood public schools from 4:00-5:30 on October 1st. Last year’s fellows will remember that Verandah visited our summer institute this year and demonstrated her technique of using told poetry.  Many participants have already used this technique in their classrooms and communities.  As one of the participants blogged, “I’ll always remember the last kernel of insight I wrote down during Verandah’s presentation: “Anything is interesting once you zoom in.””

A flyer with details about the program is available here: Verandah Flyer

Registration for the teacher workshop is available here.

Registration for other programs is available here.
