Penning our Pasts

Penning Our Pasts: A Poetry Writing Workshop with Gail Gerwin


Tuesday March 11, 2014
6:30 PM
We carry our memories within. What seemed insignificant suddenly can come to life in a narrative poem. Please join us as Morris Township playwright, essayist, and poet Gail Fishman Gerwin leads a writing workshop.

Gerwin’s poems about her own memories have been published in literary journals and anthologies and fill the pages of two collections: Sugar and Sand (2010 Paterson Poetry finalist) and Dear Kinfolk, (2013 Paterson Prize for Literary Excellence). Gerwin will discuss her narrative-poetry writing process and will provide a series of prompts that can spur the writer in each participant to go to previously unrecorded places. Participants should bring copies of old photos from home, objects that call on memories, or should bring the life experience they already own. Let your inner poet run free with your pen!

Refreshments will be served.

This program is supported by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
