Marys Peak Poets sponsored two workshops by Oregon Poet Laureate Peter Sears based on William Stafford’s poem “Ask Me”. One workshop was held at the Philomath Historical Museum and the other at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library. The workshops were coordinated by Linda Gelbrich and Sandy Lizut. Be Davison Herrera created a William Stafford Display at the library. She gave workshops and readings on both coasts in November and December.
Marys Peak Poets give readings, attend poetry events, publish and take poetry classes to promote poetry in our area. Several Marys Peak Poets will be judges as well as sponsors of the Spring Youth Poetry Contest in conjunction with the Corvallis Arts Center.
