  5. Poetry Workshop with Poet Laureate Bill Hayden

    September 16, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Children's Activity Room

    Each workshop we plan to have informal readings of original poems or works in progress, shared by poets, so come prepared to read something that you wrote, or are working on, and want to try out in a safe space. Please bring extra copies to share for the group to make comments on if you wish. This is simply to receive peer reactions and comments. We'll also allow for verbal feedback time after each person reads.We expect there to be enough time for each person to read one poem. Participants are also welcome to read a poem written by a favorite poet.The format for future workshops may included have occasional visiting featured poets. I also plan to have a listing of dates and times of other local poetry groups that meet regularly in Fairfield & Westchester counties. Please let me know if you plan to attend the workshop. I look forward to what I hope will be the first of many poetic adventures together.
