Alton Writers’ Ink’s Harry Posner, an Orangeville resident, has been chosen as Dufferin County’s inaugural Poet Laureate and declared his goal is to educate area residents on the power of the written word: “I want to remind people of that rather essential, existential truth that we’re only here for a short time and we need to make what little time we have (on this planet) as meaningful as possible,” Harry said. “Poetry is a fantastic way to tackle the difficulties and oddities that come with everyday life. It’s a nice escape… It asks where do we come from, who we are and where we are going. Simple, yet meaningful stuff.”

His fellow Writers’ Ink scribblers congratulate Harry on a well-earned honour!
