Each month, Kym Gordon Moore moderates open mic poetry readings for adults at the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center. These readings are scheduled for the second Saturday in each month. “This is the first time we are doing a poetry workshop and reading especially for children,” says Moore. “In the past, kids of all ages participated in our poetry readings, along with the adults. This time however, the workshop is followed by each young poet reading the poem they created in front of our regular open mic poetry supporters. The object of this project is to challenge the imagination and creativity of our young, aspiring poets. We will discuss and implement the construction of a themed poem and our youngsters will create a collage to use as a backdrop for their poem. Imagery always makes a poem visually stimulating. We are excited, the kids are excited and the parents/grandparents are proud.”
Upon completion of the workshop and reading, participants will receive a certificate of completion.
