Maitland Poets & Writers Reading Series runs on two Sundays a month at Lake Lily Park in Maitland, plus other special events in which the Performing Arts of Maitland takes part. The event has two available time slots (11 a.m. and noon) for featured writers and poets to read from their work. The Performing Arts of Maitland sponsors local songwriters, singers and musicians every Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm at the Maitland Farmer’s Market, and the Maitland Poets & Writers Readings take place between the music acts.

On the Sundays in which Maitland Poets & Writers hosts readings in Lake Lily Park,they also offer creative writing workshops (limited to 12 participants) from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. at the Cottage at Lake Lily. The workshops are led by your reading host and MPW Director, Vanessa Blakeslee, and follow the Amherst Writers & Artists™ method.

Please contact Vanessa for information on how to register for a workshop. No fee to attend, but PAM asks workshop participants to make a donation. Maitland Poets & Writers Workshop proceeds solely benefit Maitland Poets & Writers and enable Performing Arts of Maitland to continue to bring literary opportunities to the community.

Pre-registration for Sunday workshops is required – come join the fun!
