PLUG iN to POETRY AS MEMOiR
May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
The lines we love spark with colors, textures, sounds — think of Walt Whitman, Mary Oliver. What moments in our own lives do the same? In this workshop, led by poet Jessie Brown, we’ll explore favorite poems that give glimpses into their writers’ lives. We’ll also play with exercises that mine our memories for images: the stuff of art and poetry. Participants will take away tools to create more poems of their own. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m.
