Memorize poems with your whole body

Of course it is delightful to read a good poem, but there is even greater pleasure in memorizing one. Once it is in your head and heart you always have that poem’s wisdom and beauty to draw upon. Also, you can recite it to entertain your friends after a cocktail or two. The Poetry in Motion workshop at the Medford Library on Saturday, March 14, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm will help you memorize a favorite poem. Poet and certified applied poetry facilitator Linda Barnes will teach movement techniques designed to help take a poem into the body and enhance memorization. All you bring is at least one favorite poem, some comfortable shoes and a willingness to move.

The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required. To register or for more information, email marisahp@gmail.com by Thursday, March 12.
