In the past fifty years, a magical loosening of “poetry” has opened doors for reluctant readers and the performance of poems in “poetry slams” has attracted new audiences. The assumption of sing-song or anticipation of hidden metaphors no longer applies.
On Thursday, April 12 come take part in an informal talk. Slam poet Geof Hewitt will offer poems that defy stereotype and discuss strategies for finding more. Participants are encouraged to bring a poem to rehearse. No limit for participants.
A Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau event.
7 pm | Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street
