Giving Poems a Voice with Dodge PoetryAdult Events 04/20/2019, 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM Main Library – Classroom (1st Floor)
***Registration is now closed.
Along the way to adulthood we can forget the simple pleasure of being read to, or the feeling of discovering that we could read. The poems we remember best are often those we first encountered in this way.
Led by poets throughout New Jersey, Giving Poems a Voice invites us to enter a common space where poems are shared aloud, and to immerse ourselves in the pure pleasure of reading and listening to poetry without any pressure to critique or analyze poems.
Poems are read by participants from a shared packet provided by Dodge Poetry. This poetry packet contains close to 30 poems by various diverse poets—some who have performed at our Festival! This packet may introduce you to new poems or allow you to revisit poems that you love. Experience the surprise and wonder as participants all open the packet together at the same time and find poems that speak to them. This small-group setting, can lead to deep connections with poems and poets and with each other. Spend a little over two hours with new friends and old, discovering how to speak to each other, through the vehicle of the poem.
Offered for free, Giving Poems a Voice meets at locations spread out in counties throughout the state, on a variety of weeknights and Saturday mornings during the spring.
Registration is required and must be done through Dodge Poetry. Registration will open on March 15, 2019 here.Click here for more details...
