If you saw the Seacoast Sunday this week, you saw this feature on the new Portsmouth Poet Laureate and his “mission” to build community through poetry. Jeanne McCartin interviewed Mike Nelson about his mission, and you can read the full article here. It talks about Mike’s plans for the laureateship, including classes he’s done and continues to do with NH’s refugee and immigrant population, and his belief that listening and being heard is just as important as the act of writing itself.
So — what would the headline to this article be if this were an article about you? Architect with a mission? Barista with a mission? Gardener with a mission? No matter what your profession, hobby or skills are, you can make a mission to use them to build community. Share what you’re doing with the hashtag #PortsmouthLOVE so I can find you for a future highlight!
