Lake County is fortunate to have a rich, diverse literary community filled with writers from all backgrounds and experience, genres and styles; from poetry to fiction, non-fiction to memoir. While COVID-19 has put an unfortunate hold on in-person gatherings and events, we aim to continue the momentum by offering and sharing virtual writing events!
As of September 2020, a new Virtual Writers Circle will take place bi-weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6-8 pm! All writing genres and levels of experience welcome. New writers encouraged.
An exciting new poetry project has come to Lake County! Thanks to resident Gary Meas and the Kelseyville Business Association, Kelseyville will now have poetry boxes in town! The first poetry box is up on Main Street in Kelseyville and “The Trouble with Poetry” by Billy Collins on display.
Current Lake County Poet Laureate Georgina Marie and The Lake County Bloom collaborated on creating an online poetry column, Rooted in Poetry. See submission guidelines to submit your original work.
In honor of the current month, here is a September poem.
