This 42 year tradition is a summer favorite. The workshop welcomes all levels of writing experience and all genres.

About Star Livingstone

Livingstone, writer, naturalist, and educator has enjoyed an eclectic career sharing the challenge and mystery of language through teaching, tutoring, editing, leading writing groups, and creating poetry workshops for both adults and children. She has directed the West Falmouth library summer science school, the Easton Day Camp in Massachusetts, and shared her tree stories with the combined Falmouth schools’ Arbor Day assembly. Star has long been involved with the Old Forge Library Poetry Contest both as a poetry judge and as the leader, for several years, of the pre-contest adult workshop.

Star finds inspiration from both the natural world and human nature and, personally, finds poetry the most useful way to express the experience of being.
She is the author of Harley, an early reader book and true story. She practices the principles of permaculture and poetry on a two-acre homestead in Woodgate, New York.

Weekly Workshops

The public is invited to come and listen to our local writers. Registrants are asked to attend all sessions. Please call the library at 315 369-6008 or e-mail oldforge@midyork.org to register.
