Voices Israel Poetry

Group of Poets in English

Nahariyya Workshop, 2018

A Springtime poetry workshop was held in Nahariyya on Sunday March 4.  It included two presentations:

  • Eli Ben-Joseph: "The Wayfaring Stranger"
  • Susan Olsburgh: "The Joy of Medieval Hebrew Wine Poems"


A writing exercise followed each presentation, centered around its theme. 


Poems from the workshop

Participants were invited to submit the poems written at the workshop, or later versions of them after editing, for the workshop chapbook, and 15 poets took advantage of this opportunity. 


The submitted poems were published in a chapbook entitled On Strangers and Wine, which is available here in an online version (pdf). To access it, please click NAHARIYA CHAPBOOK.
