Join us to write poems. Every week we will read and write using prompts and examples from some wonderful poets including Lucille Clifton, Pablo Neruda, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Sonia Sanchez. We will write the poems we’ve always intended to write.

This workshop meets in three separate sessions, October 13, October 27, and November 10. Register once to attend any or all sessions.

Free for Library members; $15 for the set of three sessions for nonmembers. Members may register below; nonmembers may contact the events office at events@nysoclib.org.

Esther Cohen is a writer and poet in New York City. She also teaches and is a cultural activist. Most days she posts a poem at esthercohen.com.
