Eric Folsom

Eric Folsom is a resident of Kingston, Ontario and currently serves as that city’s Poet Laureate. He is the author of several poetry collections, including Icon Driven from Wolsak and Wynn and Northeastern “Anti-ghazals” from above/ground press.

Eric has done school workshops from about Grade 4 to 12. “As long as I have time to prepare I can work up some exercises, or do a modest little lesson, for anything from ten minutes to an hour. I can also simply read, and have no qualms about reading poems by other poets. The main point is to expose the kids to the good stuff.”
