Limited Capacity seats available

When children and adults write side by side, something magical happens. Maybe it's because children are natural poets. Their love of word play and sound, their quick observations of the moments we adults have come to recognize as poetry give them an advantage. Writing poetry with your child affirms their talent and frees you to play with language in a lighthearted way. Together, you create a family memory hinged on the creation of poetry. Children's authors Burleigh Muten and Jeannine Atkins, who write in verse, invite you to a family writing session. They will provide unique, fast-paced writing prompts to spark your creativity. You and your child will unleash your imaginations as you write poetry together. Poets ages six and older are welcome along with an adult companion.
