Add to Calendar 2021-04-01 19:00:00 2021-04-01 20:30:00 America/New_York Now We’re Cookin’: Recipes for Revising Half-Baked Poems This event will be held virtually on Zoom. VIRTUAL

This event will be held virtually on Zoom.

Revising a poem can be as engaging as writing one. We all have some stubborn poems that haven’t jelled or that seem close but for some reason just don’t hit the mark. Together we’ll try out ideas to see our poems with fresh eyes and have fun in the process.

To get the most out of the class, have on hand:

  • three separate copies of two of your own poems you wish to revise
  • scissors
  • thesaurus (print, online thesaurus, or access to Google)
  • access to online site, Rhymezone

A meeting link will be emailed to registered participants approximately one hour prior to the start of the program. Staff will be available for help with connecting to Zoom and technical issues beginning 15 minutes prior to the program. You will need a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join. If you have questions about this program, please contact Laurie Kincer at the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch at 216-382-4880. 

Marion Starling Boyer is a poet and essayist with four published poetry collections: The Sea Was Never Far (Main Street Rag) and The Clock of the Long Now (Mayapple Press) and two chapbooks, Green (Finishing Line Press) and Composing the Rain (Grayson Books).
