Program Description

Event Details

Calling all poets! Let's rename Riverfront library "the Poetry Library” this summer! 

Join us for a creative journey as we explore the theme of healthy relationships with ourselves, others, things, and the earth through poetry. Dive into topics like self-love, empathy, responsible consumption, and environmental stewardship this summer. The meaningful conversations and creative reflections will assist in creating poetry. Using poetry form, technique, and technology, we will explore how positive connections can shape our lives and propel us forward. We will celebrate by hosting a reading. Don't miss this opportunity to express yourself, connect with other creative writers and thinkers in an inspiring and brave space. 

All sessions occur 1-2:30pm on Saturdays in Riverfront Library's Yonkers Room (4th Floor).
