For much of his life Jones has written poetry for his own satisfaction, and occasionally for that of contest judges and journal editors. He also writes fiction, feature articles, essays, book reviews, and plays. Some of his work appears in the Pulse and Door County Living.
A retired teacher, he occasionally presents writing workshops for both young people and adults.
“For me,” Jones said, “writing poetry is like meditation, a method of processing all that might be amusing and confusing, ironic and poignant, alarming and scary, in life.”
The Dickinson Poetry Series features a well-known poet each month. Others in attendance are then invited to read their poetry. The series is free and open to the public.
The UUF is located at 10341 Highway 42, Ephraim.
