Artist-in-Residence Workshop with Poet Elizabeth Klein

Writer Elizabeth Klein will present a reading of her poetry collection titled Upon a Shoreline Exile. The pieces include:  “Bench at Marquette Park,” with context on how Pere Marquette influenced the poem; “Night on Main,” which includes a brief anecdote about the poem’s origins as a scene in one of her fiction pieces; “Freighter at Windermere Point,” with mention of the poem’s connections to Somewhere in Time; “Arch Rock,” with comment on the Native American legend which served as an inspiration for the poem.

Workshop will take place at the Station 256 Conference Room, located above the Mackinac Island State Park Visitor’s Center. Admission Entrance is located to the rear of the building. Admission is free. #thisismackinac
