Stop by the Sheffer Gallery for a generative lunchtime writing workshop with Westport's Poet Laureate Jessie McEntee. The exhibition Word: Visual vs. Verbal, presented by the Westport Artists Collective, will provide inspiration for related prompts that Jessie has prepared. You can share your work aloud if time allows and if you feel so inclined. Her prompts might spark a new poem, short story, or even a longer piece! Feel free to bring lunch or buy something at the Café.

Jessie McEntee has served as Westport's poet laureate for the past two years. She teaches at Westport Writers' Workshop, where she works as the head of communications, and she also runs marketing for the Pequot Library. Her chapbook Jackie O. Suffers Two Husbands and Other Poems was published by Finishing Line Press in 2019, and a second chapbook, Frida Kahlo Wakes Up to Find Diego Rivera in the Mood, will be published in the fall of 2024.
