Workshop: Understanding Poetry

March 10 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Malden Reads is teaming up with the The Malden Writers’ Collaborative (TMWC) to offer a workshop on deepening your understanding and appreciation of poetry, using excerpts and recorded performances of Joy Harjo’s poetry collection (and our Season 12 book selection), An American Sunrise. TMWC leaders and a panel of local poets will lead the workshop and facilitate discussions. Folks of all ages and identities are welcome. This workshop is digital (via Zoom) and completely open to the public.

A message from TMWC about this workshop:

Poetry is important because it reflects the world around us. It can be raps or lyrics, music, paintings, hymns, odes, dances, or other forms of storytelling. All cultural and historical groups around the world and throughout history have some form of poetry — Vikings had sagas, Ancient Greeks had odes, Christians had psalms. Poetry has been used by all peoples for tribute and storytelling. We’re pleased to share our love of reading and writing with the larger public through this workshop and excited to read some poetry together!

To register, please sign up here and you will receive a confirmation email containing information about the meeting.
