This is a series of four live get-togethers hosted by local poet Lee Kisling once per month beginning on Thursday, March 24 and ending on June 9. Lee will bring poems by various poets to be read aloud and discussed. The purpose is to share some excellent modern poems that are not widely known and to talk about what makes them fine examples of the craft of poetry. Imagine that!
Thursday, April 21, 2022 – Twelve great poems by women poets. You already know about Emily Dickinson, but there are many great poems written by women and we will read some of them and talk about why every line counts and how word choices reveal that mysterious thing called “voice.”
This is part of our NEA Big Read programming and sponsored by Art Reach St. Croix. Everyone welcome.
