Poetry Drop-in with Donald Nitchie

Poetry Drop-In Workshops

Join us at the West Tisbury Library for “Poetry Drop-In” led by Island poet, Donald Nitchie! These workshops will be held on three spring Thursdays, and workshops will be co-facilitated by a special guest poet. Participants will read and discuss two or more poems from classic and contemporary poets, and then use those poems as models for in-class writing exercises. As the poet William Matthews once said, “Artists have their life drawing classes—why can’t writers have a similar kind of thing?” These workshops are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Workshop Schedule:

  • Thursday, April 25 from 4:30-6pm – Co-facilitated by Arnie Reisman.
  • Thursday, May 23 from 4:30-6 – Co-facilitated by Jill Jupen
  • Thursday, June 20 from 4:30-6pm – Co-facilitated by Fan Ogilvie


Donald Nitchie is a poet from Chilmark whose poetry collection “Driving Lessons” was published by Pudding House in 2008.
