Poems Are Everywhere!

May 5, 2010 - Anthony Armstrong, a local Sudbury author and retired teacher, visited senior English classes at St. Benedict C.S.S. to give students a poetry workshop. He told them, “Poems are everywhere. I bump into them every day.”, and then demonstrated this fact by reading his poems titled Lily Creek and My Photograph Album. Armstrong captured the students’ attention with his thought provoking, and other times amusing, anecdotes to explain the inspiration behind his poems. For example, when he told U.S. border guards he wanted to visit the VietNam Memorial to write a poem, they asked, “Why? Can’t you write a poem in Canada”? By reading the poems from his book Shirtless Tattoo, Armstrong left the students in the room with new insights into life, the human condition, and inspired with the possibility of writing their own poetry.
