Poetry in the Pines

  • Cumming Nature Center 6472 Gulick Road Naples, NY 14512 (map)

Poetry in the Pines is an outdoor reading and discussion group held in the pine forest of the Cumming Nature Center in Naples, NY. It is a reading group for readers without the time to read: participants are invited to bring a poem, a song, an excerpt of an essay, etc. (no longer than one page! Must be written by someone NOT in attendance! Should not be written by oneself!!) to read aloud with the group and discuss, related to the themes of nature, agriculture, conservation, or eco-consciousness. Those who don't want to bring a poem with them are welcome to come listen, or choose a selection while on-site. The event will begin with a wine tasting by Living Roots urban winery and a brief viticulture talk to orient readers to the local landscape by LR co-owner Sebastian Hardy. Participants are encouraged to bring a snack to pair and share! The event is supported by a partnership with Writers & Books in Rochester.

Tickets are $12 at the door, cash only.
