SHARI WAGNER WILL PRESENT A POETRY WORKSHOP ON Friday, MAy 24, AT Syracuse-Turkey Creek Township Public Library.

Syracuse Public Library will welcome former Indiana Poet Laureate Shari Wagner for a special writing workshop at 1 p.m. Friday, May 24, in the downstairs meeting room.

The workshop’s theme is “Poetry as Memoir: Exploring the Terrain.” Members of this writing workshop will discover surprising details and insights as they explore memory’s terrain with the tools of the poet. This session will suit people interested in writing poetry or memoirs.

Wagner served as Indiana’s fifth poet laureate from 2016-2017. She has authored three poetry books, which include “The Harmonist at Nightfall: Poems of Indiana,” “Evening Chore” and “The Farm Wife’s Almanac.” Her poems have appeared in North American Review, Shenandoah, Black Warrior Review, Indiana Review and many other publications. She has also taught creative writing and memoir writing to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Syracuse Public Library received a grant from the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards, powered by Indiana Humanities, to present this workshop. During this hour-and-a-half-long program, Syracuse Public Library will provide snacks and other refreshments.
