CLASS FULL! Online Free-Write Poetry Class – Series 7
Jan 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

CLASS FULL! Online Free-Write Poetry Class (series 7)

Starting Thursday, January 7 at 4pm, the West Tisbury Library will host another online Free-Write Poetry Class led by West Tisbury Poet Laureate Spencer Thurlow. In this class, we will do five four-minute free-write sessions. After each session, writers will be encouraged to read their work to the group, but it is not required. A prompt will be given for each free-write so that we all begin with the same line, but of course, after that, writers are free to go in any direction they choose.

Come connect and get creative with us! Classes will meet virtually through Zoom on six Thursdays at 4pm. Class will be limited to five participants. Sign up is required. Please email wt_mail@clamsnet.org. Class dates: 1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11. Free and open to the public!
