Thunder, Flowers, Snakes, and Moons: Emily Dickinson’s World

A poetry and art workshop for children at the Jackson Memorial Library

Emily Dickinson made beautiful poems as a way to express her response to nature ~ what she could see with her eyes and feel with her heart. Combining realistic and spare description with imaginative metaphors allowed her to capture what is both obvious and mysterious. In this 90 minute poetry-and-art workshop for children, we will hear poems by Emily Dickinson, try making poems of our own and/or creating simple images that are drawn from the poems we hear or write.

This free workshop is on Thursday, July 30th at 10am at the Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor. The workshop is being lead by Maine poet and collaborative artist, Kimberly Cloutier Green. She currently teaches poetry in the New Hampshire seacoast area and in Boston, Massachusetts. A MacDowell Fellow, she is completing her second manuscript of poems this fall.
