Whaling in New England

Many different forms of whaling have been used in Cape Cod. Drift, shore, herding, deep sea and artic whaling have all been practiced at one time or another. Each specific form of whaling has a small history connected with it. In the early 1800’s, whaling was among the most profitable enterprises in United States, second only textiles. It remained strong for four decades. The reason why whale products are so valuable as well as the historic rationales as to why the whaling center moved from first from Nantucket, to Wellfleet, then to New Bedford and eventually to Provincetown will be told. Retelling the storied lives of several extremely successful Cape Cod whaling captains make the session come alive. Registration is recommended, seating is limited to 60.

Dr. Pregot has spent over a half of a century in the field of education. He has served as a high school principal, a district-wide school superintendent, a professor of education and as a University Director of an Educational Leadership Department. He has lived on the Cape for several years with his wife, Judith. He is still an on-line professor and author. The maritime history of the Cape has caught his attention for the past few years. He is currently studying the contributions that each Cape Cod town has made to the overall richness of maritime life.

Poetry Workshop : The Ekphrastic Poem

Join John Bonanni for a poetry workshop that will focus on the ekphrastic poem.  An ekphrastic poem is any poem that draws its inspiration from a work of visual art. While the Greek root of "ekphrastic" means a description of the scene in vivid detail, we'll look at poets who both abide by and challenge this conception, drawing their inspirations from painting, sculpture, installation, and performance. We'll then find a work of art that speaks to each of us and begin drafting our own ekphrastic poems. Registration is required.  This program is limited to 12 participants.

A Best New Poets, Pushcart, and Best of the Net nominee, John Bonanni is a Cape Cod based writer who founded the Cape Cod Poetry Review in 2011. His own poems have appeared in FoglifterNorth American ReviewPrairie SchoonerMichigan Quarterly Review, and Gulf Coast, among others. His book reviews have appeared in DIAGRAMTupelo Quarterly, and the Kenyon Review. His research on poetry as an intervention for writing attitudes among learners with severe disabilities can be found in The Graduate Review (Bridgewater State University).
