Friends of Writers mourns the loss of our colleague, poet Brigit Pegeen Kelly.

Kelly has been a friend, mentor and muse to many in the Warren Wilson family, and social media is filled with reminiscences from many of us who have been inspired by her poetry and her teaching.

Brigit Pegeen Kelly taught with the MFA Program for Writers in 1992 and 1993 and has remained a beloved member of the community since that time. When asked to contribute a gift for 2016’s 40th Anniversary celebration, she selected this lovely bird’s nest…


…found on her farm, a keepsake she’d kept for many years.

Visit the Poetry Foundation website for a full appreciation of her accomplished life: Brigit Pegeen Kelly.  The article includes links to some of her most beloved poems.
