Winter - Roy Kempton - Rod Anderson
Giving his first public reading
since his recent retirement from the position of Cobourgs Poet
Laureate, Cobourg resident Eric Winter will be one of three local poets
headlining the Cobourg Poetry Workshops 3rd Thursday Poetry Readings
series, which resume on September 17 at Meet At 66 King Street East.
Winter has long been considered the Godfather of the local poetry movement,
from its early beginnings in 2000, when a chance happening caused a
group of people to meet once a month at the library to talk about poetry,
to the creation of the Workshop - which spawned James Pickersgills
highly successful POW Festival earlier this year, placing Cobourg firmly
on the national poetry map.
