Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, all Pratt Library locations are closed out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers. Currently programs and events through April 11 have been cancelled. We will continue to update this page with more information as the situation evolves.
Prattlibrary.org will be kept up to date with further information regarding the closure of our physical locations. While our physical locations are closed, you may still use your Pratt Library Card to access Pratt Digital Library resources, including research materials, downloads, and streaming media for all ages.
Often when we approach poetry, we look at the form and style, and often follow established poets for inspiration. Does this lend itself to our true and authentic voices? How often do we reach into our senses, our narratives, our stories to create the world of poetry we want?
Poet, Performance Artist and Professor Ron Kipling Williams takes you through a journey how he began coloring his poetic world, and offers tools and insights on how to do the same.
This is a three session workshop. The first workshop is on tools and insights for creating your work. The second workshop is about feeling your work, and taking it from the page to the stage. The third is a public reading, where an audience will experience your work. You are welcome to participate in any of the two workshops, though it would be advantageous for you to attend both to receive maximum benefit. Please bring writing pads and pens, and comfortable clothes.
Free, no registration required. Seating is first come, first serve.
Re-opening activities are made possible in part by a generous gift from Sandra R. Berman.
