Join us for a free six-week poetry class taught by Rosalynde Vas Dias in person at Mount Pleasant Library!

The old writing adage is show don’t tell, but how and when might we show and how and when might we tell? In this six week class, we’ll look at image and tone in poetry and how we balance these (or don’t) with the “talky” bits. We’ll write together using exercises based on our in-class reading and is designed to be low pressure and make our pens move. Come ready to read (a little), chat, and write (bring a notebook and pen)!

Meet your Instructor: Rosalynde Vas Dias’ poetry has appeared in Crazyhorse, The Cincinnati Review, West Branch, The Pinch, Laurel Review, The Collagist, The Four Way Review, and elsewhere. Her first book, Only Blue Body, won the Robert Dana Award offered by Anhinga Press. She lives in Providence.

Register through Eventbrite to sign up for the class. Classes run every Tuesday night, 6pm-7:30pm, April 5th through May 10th in person at Mt. Pleasant Library. Please sign up up only if you plan on attending all six classes.
