This one-day workshop will focus on what Providence has to offer poets. One of those things is “more poets”, so we’ll read and emulate a range of works by local writers — and do a reading with them after the end of the class session. The day will also include writing from place, memory, and imagination, and — weather permitting — a short poetry walking tour.*

*If walking long distances is difficult for you, it’s possible that we can adapt the class, so please contact the instructor at with your needs and questions.

Date: Sunday, April 27, 12pm-5pm (class); 5:30pm-7pm (reading)
Location: 186 Carpenter Street
Tuition: $25-60 sliding scale
Register soon!
