Poetry Writing Workshop
Are you a poet, or someone who wants to learn to write and share poems?
Join us in the discovery of what can happen in a circle of people who express themselves through poetry.
Margie Flanders and Lynnie Gobeille (Members of Ocean State Poets & The Origami Poems Project) are offering a free and ongoing workshop, starting October 3, and meeting the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month 7pm to 8:15. We are open to poets wherever they are on their journey of creative expression. No pre-registration required.
As a group, we will read our poems aloud to each other, and learn how to comment and give supportive suggestions. We may also write in class, freeing ourselves to write what comes, when we don't censor our deepest and tangential thoughts. Freewriting is a wonderful way of discovering our inner voices, especially when surrounded by others who don't judge us. Questions? call 789-9507ext 23.
Come and experience the transformative nature of poetry.
If you are looking for a friendly Scrabble game this summer, stop in at the library (with your board if you have one) on Tuesday, Sept. 4 or Tuesday, Sept.18 at 6pm or Sunday, Sept 23 at 1pm.
