on the Zoom Meetings platform | open to the public; free for members | separate sessions | registration required

In this free-form creative writing workshop, we will explore what we can say and ways we can say it, by writing and reading together. We will use examples from wonderful writers, prompts, current events, and ideas, knowing that everything has the possibility to become a story or a poem.

This workshop meets in three separate sessions, October 7, October 21, and November 4.

Free for Library members; $15 for the set of three sessions for nonmembers. Register once to attend any or all sessions.

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.


The Writing Life events in 2021 are generously underwritten by Jenny Lawrence.
