Witte at Caldwell, 11/8


Dear Friends,

I have had the pleasure of working with a group of students in Dr. Mary Ann Miller’s poetry class at Caldwell College, in which the students have an opportunity to meet with poets, ask questions about writing, and learn first-hand.  Part of the class involves a service project, namely helping to arrange a poetry reading.   The students in my group are preparing for the event listed below—designing a flyer, putting out notices on social media, bringing cookies/plates/drinks, and preparing questions to ask following the reading.

I’ll be reading new poems from a recently-completed manuscript, with a Q & A and booksigning to follow. 

Maybe you can attend, or forward this notice to others in NJ who might be interested.  Many thanks and all good wishes.  –George Witte

Some previously scheduled events will post later this year.

Meanwhile, sign up for NJPoetry posts from Peter Murphy

Also, please visit The Poetry Center in Paterson, N.J.,

Thanks for your support and interest. See you around.
