Seniors! Join Gloria Monaghan at the Thomas Crane Public Library for a free workshop open to individuals 50 years or older who wish to begin writing poems or return to poems they may have been working on previously. All levels of experience are welcome. We will explore the poetry of poets writing about past experiences and then turn to exercises that may help the participant open up into a space of being where the poem, or a series of poems can flow or emerge. You will emerge with ideas, poems and goals for your future work.
Gloria Monaghan is a Professor of Humanities at Wentworth University in the School of Sciences and Humanities. She has published five books of poetry: Flawed (Finishing Line Press), Torero (Nixes Mate), The Garden (Flutter Press), False Spring (Adelaide), and Hydrangea (Kelsay Books). Her sixth book is due out in 2023 with Lily Poetry Review. Her poems have appeared in Alexandria Quarterly, NPR, Poem-a-Day, Adelaide, Aurorean, Chiron, Nixes-Mate, Mom Egg Review, and Lily Poetry Review, among others. She has been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize and the Massachusetts Book Award. Her book False Spring was nominated for the Griffin Prize.
