Freshwater Poetry Festival
This Spring, we celebrated the publication of the 2013 issue of Freshwater with the hugely successful Fourteenth Annual Freshwater Poetry Festival.
On Friday evening, May 3rd, attendees were treated to music from Asnuntuck Community College's own Jonathan Hinkel, followed by readings by the winners of 21st Annual Student Poetry Contest: Caitlin Breen, Brie Quartin, Matt Dufresne, Alexis Sanchez, Heidi Dube, and Jeremy Mullikin. The reading many open mic poets as well.
The next day, Saturday, May 4th, attendees enjoyed writing workshops by poets Greg Coleman, Gray Jacobik, Leslie McGrath, Patricia O'Brien, John Surowiecki, and Edwina Trentham. A wonderful lunch was provided by Exquisite Events. The day closed with a poetry reading by Gray Jacobik, Leslie McGrath, and John Surowiecki.
Many thanks to all who participated!
