Duvall Poetry - Dec. 5 - Griffith H. Williams

  • Written by Valley View Staff
Duvall Poetry Open Mic meets at 7 p.m. on first Wednesdays at the Duvall Library. Every month we have a featured reader (or two) plus an open mic reading. Next up Griffith H. Williams on December 5.
Griffith H. Williams says: "Chapbooks and broadsides are the heart of my work. I learned to operate an antique printing press from my parents. It seemed natural, early on, to start printing my own poems with hand-carved linoleum block illustrations. The goal has been a chapbook a year, whenever possible. As of 2017, my current mark is twenty-three books over twenty-five years. Most often, my poems arise from formal verse structure and traditional bardic techniques. Topics celebrate history, nature, Wales, water, boats, children’s verse and more."
