The Art of Making Poems: Creation and Craft

Taught by poet Hermine Meinhard
This FREE ten-week workshop for ADULTS 55+ will engage participants in a series of exercises that will connect them to their own process as writers and allow them to experiment with the elements of poetic craft. Participants will learn ways to access the intuitive mind, how to use a variety of materials, including objects, evocative language, and artwork, to enter into the writing process. The work of a variety of poets will be read and discussed to introduce the range of possibilities of poetry; and we will draw on the library’s resources.
