The Voices Israel Group of Poets

in English

Nahariya Workshop, 2018

A Springtime poetry workshop was held in Nahariya 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. An online (PDF) version of the chapbook is available here
