February 23rd, 9:30-11:30 am. "Penning Our Pasts",
Gail Fishman Gerwin, M.A., freelance writer, playwright, and poet, will read from her poetic memoir Sugar and Sand, followed by a discussion and workshop.
Everyone has a story to tell and this program will enable participants to put a first draft of the poetry of life on paper. Through personal insights and prompts, the words should flow easily and there will be an opportunity to share these words or simply to jump-start the creative process. Everyone is welcome to read personal poetry already written or poetry admired.
