Splashing in the Word Pool: Diving into Poetry

Perhaps you've thought that "poetry" was reserved for only a few exceptional people. We invite you to use your creativity to explore poetry writing. Our first dip into the "word pool" will use sensory detail to create a word image. In the second, we'll use The Guest House by Rumi and The Book of Qualities by J. Ruth Gendler to create text and image with pastels and markers.
Bring your curiosity, your favorite pen and your sense of wonder. We'll work with writing prompts of all sorts - poems and quotes, a word bowl, "free-writes", images, and our own memories and stories to connect words and images. Leave your inner critic at home and come out to play!

Please call 234-7897 to register for this program.

This program series is made possible by the NYSCA with the support of Gov. Duomo and the NYS Legislature.
