Poetry Writers Meetup

Do you love to write poetry? Do you want to connect with other poets in the area? Join us for a get-together with poets from Brookline and Greater Boston! We’ll meet in an informal setting to share our experiences writing and discuss what we’re reading. Whether you’re just starting to write poetry or have been writing for a while, if you’re looking for a community of poets, you’re welcome to join us.

The Poetry Writers Meetup is hosted by Brookline’s current poet laureate, Jennifer Barber. This meeting will focus on world language poetry and poetry in translation. We will be joined by poet and translator Nidia Hernandez, who will talk briefly about her volume The Invisible Borders of Time: Five Female Latin American Poets, which contains translations from Spanish and Portuguese. Other attendees are encouraged to share their experiences, joys, and challenges with writing and translating poetry.

This program is open to all adults and is especially geared towards emerging poets.

This program is in partnership with the Brookline Commission for the Arts.
