Article by Maxwanette A Poetess aka Maxine A. Moncrieffe

As a newfound resident of Ulster County, NY, the past 4 months have been AWESOME! Tapping into the poetry and creativity here, is absolutely mind-boggling and something, I simply had to share…

Ulster County, located in the picturesque Hudson Valley region of New York, is a haven for poets and creative minds alike. With its stunning landscapes, vibrant arts scene, and rich cultural heritage, this county has become a thriving hub for poetry and creativity.

One cannot talk about poetry in Ulster County without mentioning the legendary Woodstock, a small town that became synonymous with the counterculture movement of the 1960s. Woodstock’s influence on the arts is undeniable, and it continues to inspire poets and artists to this day. The town’s bohemian spirit and natural beauty have attracted countless creative souls, making it a hotbed for artistic expression.

The county’s natural landscapes, including the majestic Catskill Mountains, the Hudson River, and numerous parks and trails, provide endless inspiration for poets. The serene beauty of the region, with its rolling hills, cascading waterfalls, and vibrant foliage, has a way of stirring the imagination and igniting the creative spark within.

Ulster County is also home to a vibrant and supportive poetry community. Numerous poetry readings, open mic nights, and workshops take place regularly, providing a platform for both established and emerging poets to share their work. These events foster a sense of camaraderie among poets, allowing them to connect, collaborate, and grow together.

The county’s rich cultural heritage further enhances its poetic landscape. Ulster County has a long history of attracting artists, writers, and musicians, who have left an indelible mark on creativity, culture, the entertainment industry, and the people of New York State.
