Place-Based Poetry to Celebrate Earth Day
April 22, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Our natural surroundings have long inspired artistic creation through visual arts, dance, or poetry. In honor of National Poetry Month (April), we are partnering with the Rockland Public Library for Poetry Month Rockland, a month-long celebration of landscapes.
With the hills, river, and coastline of the Georges River watershed in our midst, local poets are invited to pursue their artistic talent while being inspired by these familiar places.
During the month of April, poets will have the chance to visit some of our protected lands, hike the trails of our Georges Highland Path, or find their own special niche in the watershed. We will provide a tool-kit for poets who are interested in practicing their discipline in situ. On Earth Day, Monday, April 22, poets can reveal their creations at the Placed-Based Poetry event at the Rockland Public Library.
If you are a poet (professional, amateur, or aspiring), read this to find out how to submit your poem – or poems!
This event is co-sponsored by the Rockland Public Library and it will be held in the Library Reading Room.
