Eagle Theatre to Hold Poetry Workshop, Beginning 1/30

Continuing its tradition of bringing educational programming to the Atlantic County area, the Eagle Theatre will once again hold a beginner-to-intermediate level poetry workshop beginning at 7:00pm on Wednesday, January 30.

The workshop will be held on a bi-weekly basis from January 30 until May 8 for a total of eight sessions, meeting on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm. During each session, writers will give feedback on the work of others, as well as receive critiques on their work from fellow members of the workshop. There will also be discussion on various elements of craft and poetic technique.

This poetry workshop will be co-directed by Dave Murphy and Eagle Theatre manager Scott Van Pelt. Murphy, a resident of Hammonton, has enthusiastically taught English for over 30 years. He has also participated in many poetry and prose workshops, events, and readings, including Peter Murphy's annual Poets and Writers Getaway in Cape May, the poetry programs of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, advanced writing seminars with Pulitzer Prize winning poet Stephen Dunn and the creative writing workshops of the Artist Teacher Institute. A recipient of three National Endowment for the Humanities grants, Murphy has published a "handful of articles and poems," is working on longer prose works, and continues to teach, read, and write poetry.

The registration fee for participation in the workshop is $45 for all eight sessions. It is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the Eagle Theatre at (609) 704-5012 for more information and for registration. Enrollment in the workshop is limited to 10 individuals.
