Join Julie Choffel, West Hartford's Poet Laureate, in reading and conversation about poems that speak to our lives today. Each time we will discuss a different handful of poems from a range of contemporary poets. Participants will gain new approaches to reading poetry of all kinds and leave with a related writing prompt to try on their own.
Registration requested; seating is limited to the first twenty people.
JULIE CHOFFEL teaches creative writing at UConn and is the author of The Hello Delay, a book of poems.
