Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance will offer “Breaking Points,” a workshop for intermediate and advanced poets led by Megan Grumbling, on Saturday, February 15, at Belfast Free Library. Advance registration no later than February 10 is required. Grumbling will address the art of line breaks in free and formal verse. Participants will investigate practical techniques and read illustrative poems by poets such as Miller Williams and Yusef Komunyakaa, then practice the techniques in their own writing. There will be a brief session of sharing new work and receiving feedback. Grumbling’s poetry collection “Booker’s Point” was awarded the Vassar Miller Prize and the Maine Book Award for Poetry. Her newest book, “Persephone in the Late Anthropocene,” is forthcoming in 2020. She has been awarded the Ruth Lilly Fellowship and the Robert Frost Foundation Award, and her work has appeared in Poetry, Crazyhorse, The Iowa Review, Memorious, and elsewhere.
