REACTIONARY: An Exploration of Poetry & Place

 

Newtown Literary editors will facilitate a workshop and reading that explores history, motion, and place. Using the Lewis Latimer House Museum as inspiration, poetry prompts will be provided in several spaces inside the house and its garden, asking participants to respond to their surroundings. We will draw from Lewis Latimer’s life and career as well as from articles inside his home, the home’s architecture, and the encompassing neighborhood. Participants will have the opportunity to share their work, and readings by three Newtown contributors will take place as we move through the museum’s landscape, from its history to the present.
