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.
March’s Theme: BALANCE
What does it mean to be well-balanced? Explore balance in poetry: long lines vs short ones, use of punctuation or not, choppy vs flowy, use of negative space, descriptions vs actions. Challenge: using this article, try to write an “erasure” poem by blocking out chunks of text, leaving behind select words to make a poem.
While sharing your work is completely voluntary, respectful listening is required.
Find this event upstairs in the Co-op's Classroom. Please call ahead in the event of inclement weather to be sure event hasn't been cancelled.
