Celebrate National Poetry Month with a free workshop in the gallery

A Workshop to Celebrate National Poetry Month!

Thursday April 23, 2015, 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Join poet Leona M Seufert for a free workshop in the gallery where she will show attendees how to write poetry inspired by the artwork in the current exhibit “Shadows and Memories”. Leona will demonstrate how artwork, artist statements, and titles can be the basis for poems. There will be time for you to write a few poems and share them with workshop attendees. Since this workshop will take place in the gallery, you will also have the opportunity to view the exhibit. Light refreshments will be served. No reservations necessary.

Seufert, a resident of Roselle Park, is the town’s first Poet Laureate. National Poetry Month is a special month for her, as it gives her a chance to promote the delights of reading and writing poetry. She not only reads her poems but also conducts workshops around the craft of writing poetry.
