      Main Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      In this Creative Aging Poetry class, participants will have the opportunity to put their poetry muscle to work in a safe, creative, and supportive community. Participants will read, write, and share poetry throughout the 8 weeks. The class will focus on four elements of a poem: imagination, music, story and structure. By using wordplay exercises, prompts, and reading a range of poetry styles, students will hone their poetry skills and begin to see the world through the eyes of a poet. Come experience what Robert Pinsky meant when he said, “Poetry is a basic human pleasure.” The 8-week course will occur every Monday, 2pm-4pm, starting July 11 through September 12 (no class 7/25 or 9/5). This will be an in-person program at the Main Library. Space is limited to 20 participants. Due to the popularity and to gain the most out of this program, we expect all participants to commit to all sessions in this 8-week course.
