Tammy Nuzzo-Morgan Poetry Workshop February 2019

Four Saturdays in February from 1:00 to 3:30 February 2, 9, 16 & 23. Attend one session or come for all four. 

Join poet Tammy Nuzzo-Morgan, founder of The North Sea Poetry Scene Press and Poet-in-Residence at Southampton Historical Museum for a discussion of Whitman’s life and work during the Civil War, followed by a workshop.

A unique opportunity for novice and experienced poets alike to explore Whitman’s verse and to pen some lines of their own.  Refreshments will be served.


Ms. Morgan’s career milestones include: first woman to be appointed Suffolk County Poet Laureate; a position she held from 2009-2011; Walt Whitman’s Birthplace Association Poet of the Year 2017; and 2014 Poetry Director of Youth Program in Ireland at the Gerard Manly Hopkins Festival.

She is Assistant Professor in Humanities at Briarcliffe College where she is working on her Ph.D. dissertation, “The Healing Power of Poetry and the Creative Process.” Author of several books of poetry including Let Me Tell You Something, which earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination in 2006, Ms. Morgan describes her work as confessional and has been writing poetry since she was a teenager.

Please bring in any writing material and/or the ideas you are working on. Together we will work towards bringing your goals to fruition. Most sessions will allow time to read from what you have written and analyze it with your peers. In the coming months, you can look forward to meeting guest speakers for professional guidance and support.
