Attention Queens parents, teachers, and kids: free creative writing classes available at Queens Library!
Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the writing of prose and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Public Library, is offering free creative writing classes for kids and teens.
The next class is Saturday, March 7th from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at Queens Public Library in Jackson Heights, located at 35-51 81st St, for kids ages 8 through 12:
“The Building Blocks of Poetry”
Rhyme, alliteration, metaphor, meter: these are just a few of the tools that poets use as the building blocks of poetry. In this workshop, we will review and use such tools to build poems of our own. Kids will find inspiration in our worksheets and prompts to bring their big imaginations to the page and leave with a brand new poem or two of their very own construction.
Seo-Young Chu will lead the class. She teaches at Queens College, City University of New York.
This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
