Nixon is an avid nature enthusiast and distinguished poet,who has authored poems, essays and popular books such as “Walking Woodstock” and “The Pocket Guide to Woodstock.”

Since 2010, the college has been providing innovative workshops for the general public and is currently offering a series of free monthly workshops on the first Saturday of each month from 1 – 3 p.m.  In March, the college offered a workshop that examined indigenous poetry, focusing on native cultures of Latin America, Africa and Australia and the month prior a creative writing workshop using music from the Great American Songbook.

Following the workshops, beginning at 3:30 p.m., Poetry on the Loose presents a poetry reading by a featured poet followed by an open reading.
