Community partners: Westport Arts Center and Westport Arts Advisory Committee
Location: Westport Arts Center, 51 Riverside Avenue 

Pat Barker’s novel combines both fictional and real characters seeking to make sense of World War I and their changed world, centering on Siegfried Sassoon, noted poet and decorated war hero. Sassoon was among the prominent British poets whose response to WWI changed the landscape of modern poetry.

In honor of this legacy, this program invites modern poets to respond to our times and the challenges we all face. Poets interested in sharing their work, should submit poetry for consideration by Sunday, January 21 via email: waac@westportct.gov. Participating poets will be notified by Friday, January 26 and will read their poem at the February 1 program, which is free and open to the public at the Westport Arts Center, 51 Riverside Avenue.
