Distinguished poet coming to Writers' Forum
Laurinburg, N.C. - Distinguished poet Becky Gould Gibson will be the featured reader at the St. Andrews Writers' Forum.
Free and open to the public, the Forum begins at 8 p.m. Thursday in Orange Main Lounge of the St. Andrews Presbyterian College campus.
Gibson, a professor Emeritus of English and Women's Studies at Guilford College, has written several books of poetry, including Need Fire, Aphrodite's Daughter and Off-Road Meditations.
"I write to find out what I'm thinking... at a deep level," she said. "If I know exactly what I am going to say or exactly how I want the poem to turn out, there is no energy there, no spark."
