Class Description

Sometimes the struggles we experience in life are the hardest to write about. These are the struggles that shape who we are and help us define our voice. If you have ever wondered what impact sharing your story could have on others or if your words could make a difference (to someone else), join us!

In this workshop, we will discuss clear and effective ways to write poems from your personal experiences.

This program is open to everyone, it does not matter what experience you have with writing.

This class takes place at the Boston Public Library's Mattapan branch, 1350 Blue Hill Avenue, Mattapan, MA 02126. If you have any difficulty signing up online, please call 617-695-0075.

Pa Rele Nou Mouri

Pafwa li trè difisil pou nou pran eksperyans nan la vi e transfòme yo an mo. Anpil fwa se eksperyans sayo ki defini vwa nou e ki ba nou idantite nou. Si ou te janm mande ki sa enpak istwa ou genyen ou byen si pawol ou kapab fè yon diferans nan lavi yon lot moun, rantre nan nou.

Nan “workshop” sa’a, nou pral aprann ki jan pou ekri powèm ki soti nan eksperyans pèsonèl ou.

Pwogram sa a ouvè a tout moun, li pa gen pwoblèm sa eksperyans ou genyen avek ekri.

Klas sa a fèt nan Bibliyotèk Piblik Boston, Branch Mattapan, 1350 Blue Hill Avenue, Mattapan, MA 02126. Si w gen nenpòt difikilte ki siyen sou entènèt, tanpri rele 617-695-0075.
