Hugh MacDonald - Poetry Workshops

Poetry - WvA.jpgPEI is a province of poets. That's what UPEI English professor Richard Lemm was telling us just a couple weeks ago. Well here's something to make PEI a province of even better poets. A series of workshops and readings starts this Wednesday in Charlottetown, them moves on to Summerside and Montague in the following days.
