Spring 2017:

Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 2pm. Public poetry reading in the museum’s beautiful galleries by poets participating in the Spring Drop-in Poetry Workshop.

Hunterdon Art Museum Drop-in Poetry sessions in 2017 facilitated by me, held on the first Sunday of the month from 2pm-3:30pm. Remaining sessions:  May 7; June 3, 2017.

Drawing on the thoughtful salon-like environment I created in the Panoply Books Reading series, I will provide a supportive framework for writing or revising poems. Craving artistic camaraderie but still feeling reserved about your work? You can receive as much or as little personal attention as you like. All levels are welcome, ages 18+.

(Please note the last session is a Saturday reading by participating poets.  Public invited.)

$10 donation per session. Space is limited so reserve your spot early if you can.
