English Professor Ginger Hurajt

Northern Essex English professor and Haverhill resident Ginger Hurajt will teach a one-night poetry workshop on Wednesday, April 9, at 6 p.m. at the Langley-Adams Library, 100 Main St. Groveland.

This workshop is free and open to the public.

Hurajt, a popular professor in the English department, regularly teaches Poetry as Literature, Creative Writing Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction, as well as composition and other literature courses. She is a member of the NECC Poetry Group, a writing group that meets monthly and whose work was profiled in Parnassus, the college’s literary magazine.

Her poetry workshop explores this medium using mindfulness and reflection.

“Every poem contains part of the world,” she says. “The writer’s task is to make close observations and find the language to bring a story or an image to the page. How can we become better observers and writers? By using mindfulness and reflection we will create stronger “moments” of poetry. We will look at the work of master poets, and write and share our own short poems.”

Participants should come armed with paper and a pen or pencil.

This presentation is part of the college’s speakers’ bureau which provides speakers free of charge to area nonprofits.
