Class Description

Join us for this collaboration between GrubStreet and Mass Poetry for a discussion of this year’s Common Threads poems, seven poems by Massachusetts writers that cross “‘Thresholds'—from past to present, self to other, real to imagined.” We’ll collect resonant phrases from the poems as we read them and hear them in the poets' own voices via videoclips. The phrases we select will deepen our insight into the poets’ craft and become the basis for writing poems of our own that we will share in class. This event is free - register today!
Produced by Mass Poetry, Common Threads is annual publication of 7-10 poems by Massachusetts poets chosen by a Massachusetts poet, with a guide to reading and discussing the poems, videos of the poems being read (by the poets themselves when possible), and outreach to libraries, senior centers, book clubs, and more, to facilitate ~350 poetry discussion groups throughout the state in an effort to broaden the audience for poetry.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better.
