Robert Anthony Gibbons

The Legacy Workshop


Robert Anthony Gibbons’s first collection, Close to the Tree, was published in 2012 by Three Rooms Press. In 2019, his chapbook, Flight, was published by Poets Wear Prada and You Almost Home, boy, was released by Harlequin Creatures. In 2021, with Brooklyn-based artist, Amy Williams, Some Little Words was published by the 440 Gallery. His most recent manuscript, Whom the Higher Gods Forgot will be out early 2022.


About his workshop, Mr. Gibbons quotes writer Linda Spence, “Legacy is about life. About the time we’ve lived in, the people and events that have helped shaped us, how and whom we’ve loved, what has stirred us and how we’ve tried. Where there is laughter, there are tears, too. Let's write about that.”

K. Charles Latimer

Let Your Mind Do Its Job

K. Charles Latimer has been writing poetry since he was a child but didn’t take it serious until he was 16 years old when his English teacher, Mrs. Snoddy, told him that he had a talent for it. As he grew older, he continued to write poetry, mainly to release his own anxieties. Several decades later, at the age of forty-two, he published his first book, The Light of His Eyes to local acclaim. His second book, The Melchizedek Seed, was included on the Newark Yearly Theological Sellers List. Several of his poems were also published in various magazines.

More recently, Mr. Latimer has published two poetry collections, DayMares and NightDreams (What the hell did I eat?) and Shhh…While Commotion Speaks. He has also published a suspense novel, Tag, You’re It and a social awareness book titled Centuries of Screaming (Do You Hear Us Now!).

Mr. Latimer has been recognized by the National Writers Union, The Academy of American Poets, and Novelist Inc. He has also won awards from Poetry Soup and the National Poetry Group, where he was called “an up and coming writer.”
