Tuesday Poetry Workshops-June 25 at 6:30 PM
Led by Southborough residents Elliott and Nancy Simons, this regular poetry workshop meets every other week on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Sessions start at 6:30 PM until about 8:30 PM. The group is loosely associated with the Worcester County Poetry Association. The group will meet upstairs in the library's Main Floor programming space at a designated back table.
At each session, each participant is asked to bring five copies of their original poetry and distribute them to the group. The poem will be read aloud, and the group will provide constructive feedback. Don't have a poem? No problem. Come stop by and see if this group is for you.
