An Update regarding the Stanley Kunitz's
Boyhood Home Summer Writing Series
Carol Stockmal, owner & curator of the Stanley Kunitz Boyhood Home, has made the difficult decision to no longer host the Summer Writing Series at her home. The Worcester County Poetry Association thanks Carol for opening her home to area poets and lovers of poetry as part of the writing series over the past seven seasons.
The history and persona of the Stanley Kunitz Boyhood Home have been a significant draw of each workshop. That tableau allowed the workshop facilitators and participants to immerse themselves in the work of Stanley Kunitz, working where Stanley may have worked, hearing and breathing and being part of that history.
The Summer Writing Series has always been a partnership between Carol and the WCPA. With Carol stepping down as host, and the continued uncertainty with social distancing and travel restrictions due to the coronavirus, the WCPA will take some time to reflect and evaluate what options exist for the program in 2020. We will share an update once the path forward is clear.
"I can scarcely wait till tomorrow
when a new life begins for me,
as it does each day,
as it does every day."
