The Experience of the Poem

Hosted By: DOROT

DOROT Programs


Join the conversation with DOROT members and award-winning poet and long-time DOROT instructor Jessica Greenbaum. We will be spending time each week with a few poems that aim to offer poetry’s glorious array of powers. Most poems will be contemporary and accessible, chosen for how they might amplify what it means to be a human being—and also what it means to be a poem.

The theme of the poems we read will flow with the curiosity of the class, hoping to invite and encourage everyone to partake of this free-to-all art. No previous experience needed, of course! We will look forward to being together on screen in the ways we can be (please keep your cameras on if possible!) and getting to know each other through our shared thoughts and questions.
