The Riverwood Poetry Series continues with Sean Frederick Forbes

Portrait of poet Sean Frederick Forbes

Forbes’ themes will include poetic narratives about the immigrant experience, writing in poetic forms and traveling. He’ll read from his book Providencia as well as providing context for the virtual audience.

In 2009, he received a Woodrow Wilson Mellon Mays University Fellows Travel and Research Grant for the travel to Providencia, Colombia. Providencia, his first book of poetry, was published in 2013. He serves as poetry editor for New Square, the official publication of The Sancho Penza Literary Society for which he is a founding member.
