Middle Creek Poetry Festival

October 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Middle Creek Publishing Poetry Fest

Middle Creek Publishing & Audio presents two days of poetry readings and workshops by Middle Creek poets, all graciously co-hosted by Wolverine Farm & Publick House. The event is a fund raiser for the press, and all sales of books, art and merchandise will go to help Middle Creek Publishing continue its work getting quality poetry and literature of human ecology out into the world. Join poets Kathleen Willard, Amy Wray Irish, Anne Haven McDonnell, Tony Burfield, David Anthony Martin, E. A. Lechleitner, Aaron M. Moe, Alexander Shalom Joseph and Mike Parker for free poetry readings of eco-poetry, nature-poetry and more throughout the two days. Between poetry readings poets will lead poetry and writing workshops which can be registered for separately. These events will be taking place at Wolverine
