Ministers Hall


In an interview in Psychology Today poet Jane Hirshfield said, “One reason to write a poem is to flush from the deep thickets of the self some thought, feeling, comprehension, question, music, you didn’t know was in you, or in the world.”

I invite you to join me on a trek through the deep thickets, a journey of expression through poetry. We’ll meet the first Wednesday of the month starting November 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in Ministers Hall, for 4 sessions ending in February. On these evenings together we’ll write using in-class writing exercises, working together to produce new work. Each writer need only bring paper and a pen, and a desire to experiment. We’ll make time for those who wish to bring poems that they are working on outside of the group that they would like us to read, and we’ll practice the art of constructive critique. And we’ll share with each other some published poems that we love. No experience necessary! You do not have to have ever written a poem before or you could be a poet with publications. There is no level of expertise needed to gather together and write, share and appreciate the art of poetry. Group size will be limited to 8, making sure there’s time for all to share. Please write me at nical09@gmail.com if you’re interested.
