Saturday, November 12th: Color in Poetry: What Does It Mean? How Can We Use It?
Join us on Saturday for Poetry on the Square, 4pm-6pm at Discover Teas Port Warwick!
Nancy Powell, who released her latest poetry collection in December, comes to Poetry on the Square with a presentation on the importance and power of colors with “Color in Poetry: What Does It Mean? How Can We Use It?” Nancy will start us off at 4:00pm, and, as always, we’ll follow up by sharing our open round-robin poetry reading until 6:00pm.
As usual, all work is welcome—and so are guests, so feel free to invite a friend to come and check it out!
