Poetry Ambassadors

Poetry Circle: An Interactive Poetry Workshop
Monday, April 30, 2018, 6 to 8 p.m.
At Cambridge Arts Gallery 344
344 Broadway, 2nd floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Cambridge poet and artist Monica Raymond invites you to be a part of the Poetry Circle workshop. Bring a favorite poem (40 lines or fewer) by you or someone else to read together and then use as a source of inspiration for new writings. 

“We'll alternate between periods of reading poems out loud, and quiet times for writing, thinking and dreaming,” Raymond says. “Sharing the new works created at the circle is welcomed and encouraged, but is always optional. Not comfortable reading aloud or don’t have a favorite poem to bring?  No worries, that’s fine too.  Join us anyway. Readings are voluntary and a selection of poems will be available at the event to browse and choose from for inspiration.”
