Amherst Poetry Festival – Sept 17

Children are Poets Too!

A Writing Workshop for Children and Adults at the Emily Dickinson Museum. Children and Poets have a lot in common. They see the world afresh, enjoy word play, and often share a love of the natural world. Write alongside a child you love and enjoy the creativity that flows between the two of you. During this workshop in Emily Dickinson’s garden, writing prompts that relate to the poet will spark your creativity. Appropriate for children ages six and up. An adult must accompany children. Burleigh Muten, author of Miss Emily (a novel in verse) and tour guide at The Emily Dickinson Museum, has led writing workshops throughout New England for adults and children for 25 years. Inspiring young authors is one of the joys of being an author and teacher.

When: Saturday Sept 17 2-2:45PM

Where: Emily Dickinson Museum (280 Main St, Amherst, MA – 01002)
