Judith Steinbergh, Brookline's poet laureate, has a host of exciting events planned for the fall. First up will be Caring for our Earth - a Poetry Writing Workshop led by Judith. This will be held on Tuesday, Sept 16 from 6:50-8:20 at the Coolidge Corner Library on Pleasant St in Brookline.
With some guidance and much choice, try your hand at writing a poem about something from the natural world that intrigues and moves you, something you'd wish to protect or preserve. Novice and experienced writers are welcome. Space is limited so please contact Judith at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact info if you plan to attend.
