Poetry workshop with Ray McNiece at the Cleveland Public Library

Cleveland Public Library and Ohio Center for the Book join Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Ray McNiece for monthly intergenerational and multicultural poetry workshops pairing youth poets with community elders aged 50 and older.

Prompts created by youth poets jumpstart the conversation, resulting in poems that serve as a bridge between cultures, generations, and neighborhoods.

Add your voice to the mosaic of perspectives telling the story of our city! Poems created in the workshops will be published in an anthology in 2023.
