Jim Kincaid, Aerold Arnold Professor of English at USC, will facilitate a free poetry workshop at Sierra Madre Public Library on Friday, April 15, at 7:00 p.m. This user-friendly program is for anyone who likes to read, listen to, or write poetry. There will be something for everyone in this workshop—for those who simply love poetry but have never composed a poem, to poets with years of writing experience.
In the first half of the workshop, Professor Kincaid will discuss how to read poetry and its connection to song and improvisation. Following the discussion, participants will have an opportunity to compose a poem in a hands-on practicum.
The Sierra Madre Public Library is located at 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre. (626) 355-7186. www.sierramadre.lib.ca.us.
