April is National Poetry Month, and Westport’s Poet Laureate, Jessie McEntee, will join us on Friday, April 19 at 6:00p-8:00p. During this one-hour meeting, she’ll lead you through a generative workshop inspired by the artwork at MoCA, and she’ll share some favorite ekphrastic poems.* If time allows, participants might have a chance to read aloud from their notes and receive positive and encouraging feedback. Leave with building blocks for a new piece. Return with Jessie on the following Friday for MoCA Some Noise (April 26th at 6:30), an open mic for registered participants that promises laughter and connection. Share the ekphrastic poem that you’ve had a week to polish, or any other piece!
