The Worcester County Poetry Association celebrated Bloomsday with our annual Worcester Ramble, which took place from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on June 16th. Bloomsday is always open to the public, and all are welcome to read during the event. Of course, listening is welcomed as well. For 2018 we did things a little different, using 6 locations instead of 8, because we always seem to lack time in actually finishing a full episode.
Thanks to our talented organizers, Kristina England and Jay Lavelle, for putting together a great event. Special thanks to our guest facilitators, Sharon Legasey and Robert Steele, who stepped in while one of the regular organizers took care of some personal business.
Thanks to the Pulse Magazine and the Worcester Telegram & Gazette for writing articles about our 23rd Annual Ramble. Let them know you appreciate the coverage of poetry by leaving a comment on the articles or sharing them on social media.
