Tompkins Corners presents Poet Ken Holland

August 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Tompkins Corners welcomes poet Ken Holland, an award-winning poet who has been nominated three times for the Pushcart Prize and has won/placed in numerous contests, including those sponsored by Naugatuck River Review and the Stephen DiBiase competition. The reading will be on our outdoor stage and will be followed by an open mic for those who register to read. All writers are welcome!

Ken Holland’s poems have been widely published in such journals as Rattle, Tulane Review, Southwest Review, North Dakota Quarterly, The American Journal of Poetry, and Tar River, with poetry forthcoming in The MacGuffin and Sugar House Review and several others. Ken’s work spans what he calls “the broad pond of poetry,” claiming that he “sometimes gets to the other side, but more often falls into the muddy waters.” He lives in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York.

Open mic registration will be available on-site on the day of the reading. In case of inclement weather, the reading will be held in our historic Carriage House. Visit TCCC Poets’ Corner for updates. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.

This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
