Join poet, teaching artist, and author Esther Cohen for a creative writing workshop - a conversation of thinking, talking, and creating. Participants will find ways into writing using memories and observations, and eventually will aim to create their own work as wild, tender, and complex as life.

This workshop meets on Thursdays

Participation in the full set of sessions is recommended but not required.

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.
