Join us for Poetry Open Mic & food for thought every third Friday of the month! The Lettuce Write Poetry Series is a cost-free, judgement-free, all-ages event open to every poet and listener! Write a poem that relates to the monthly theme, (however loosely!) and share it with the group! Come to explore socially-relevant topics, network with other writers in the community, and share your work with an engaged audience. Original work is encouraged, but covers are fine too! Light refreshments provided.
January’s Theme: Home
Let’s kick off the services by starting from the beginnings. Where do you call home? Is it a place or a feeling? How has your idea of home changed over the years? Describe the landscape of your home place (hills, coastline, desert?) How can where you grew up shape what foods you eat now? How can we make everyone feel at home in the Upper Valley? Consider the environmental state of our planet – What challenges does this home face?
While sharing your work is completely voluntary, respectful listening is required.
