This class is for teens-adults and is FREE to participants and will be held in-person at our library.

A word from Carol:

There will be poetry parts all over the room when we get finished! We’ll find words we like, phrases we like, lines we like, sentences we like, and we’ll build a whole new poem from the explosion! Maybe you will be able to build a poem of your own to share. Who can say what will happen, with all those snippets of poems or songs and quotations, rolling around? The objects found in nature? The unfinished sentences? The puppets! The interesting words! This is fun and appropriate for ages 12 and up, whether you’ve ever worked with poetry explosives before or not.

Reserve a seat for yourself by contacting Lodi Library soon. Whisper the code word, ANTENACEOUS, but DON’T SPELL IT CORRECTLY!

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants program, a regrant program of New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Auburn Public Theater.
