MWiP’s First Poetry Workshop: Writing about History and Place

May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Writing about History and Place”

Join us on May 7 for a free in-person workshop at the Worcester PopUp with poet Susan Edwards Richmond!

This first of three workshops hosted by Mapping Worcester in Poetry’s “Poems in and out of Places” focuses on writing poems inspired by the past and the present of our city’s public spaces. The workshop includes resources, practical tips, field research at historical sites in downtown Worcester, and a chance to share your new poem with others.

Perhaps you’ll decide to enter the finished product in the Poems in and out of Places contest due June 2023!

Because we will be going in and out ourselves during the workshop, please wear a mask inside, dress appropriately for walking outside, and bring writing materials with you.

The workshop is free, but spaces are limited. Please reserve your spot by submitting a request to poemsinandoutofplaces@worcestercountypoetry.org by May 3, 2022.


The Worcester PopUp at the JMAC is a free-to-use, creative
co-working space of the Worcester Cultural Coalition and in partnership with The Barr Foundation. This event does not necessarily reflect the views of either organization.
