Princeton Festival Poetry Workshop

Saturday June 18, 2022

The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) invites poets of all ages to be a part of a free poetry workshop to be held Saturday, June 18 at 12:30pm during the 2022 Princeton Festival.

This year's prompt invites poets to take inspiration from themes found in Derrick Wang's opera Scalia/Ginsburg. The poetry will explore what it means to be a feminist, the concept of dissent, and how to forge unlikely friendships in difficult times.

Participants can bring their original poetry and receive first-hand feedback in this guided masterclass. They will also have the opportunity to read their poetry aloud afterwards at a 3pm "Just Poetry" reading. Both events are free and open to the public. For additional information or to RSVP, visit princetonsymphony.org/festival or contact Katie Miller at kmiller@princetonsymphony.org.
