KFPL congratulates Helen Humphreys, the new Poet Laureate for the City of Kingston. In this role, overseen by the Kingston Frontenac Public Library, Humphreys will work with library and City staff to develop programs and serve as our literary ambassador — an advocate for poetry, language and the arts within the community.
Beginning in May 2015, Helen will offer quarterly writing workshops and one-on-one sessions with emerging poets at libraries across Kingston.
