A Gathering of Laureates

Furman University, Hartness Pavilion Dining Room

This joint poetry reading and discussion features South Carolina’s three appointed Poets Laureate: SC Laureate Marjory Wentworth, who has held her office since 2003; Laurel Blossom, the Poet Laureate (since 2014) of Edgefield, SC; and Ed Madden, the recently-appointed Poet Laureate of Columbia, SC. 

Each poet will give a short reading from their work in the first half of the program. In the second half, each poet will be asked by the moderator to speak about their work as a poet laureate.  The event is free.
