JOIN US FOR A COMMUNITY POETRY PROJECT!

The Medfield Public Library, Medfield TV and the Cultural Alliance of Medfield are partnering in a Poetry Project! Community members of all ages will engage in creating and reading poetry, and a temporary installation of poems written and chosen by YOU will be displayed at the former Medfield State Hospital in the fall.

Teens can participate by creating a Blackout Poem:

  • Mark around the words in the text on ONE page to create a poem. Be as artistic as you like (see examples)
  • PLEASE INCLUDE ON A SEPARATE PIECE OF PAPER THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

    NAME

    POEM TITLE

    EMAIL OR PHONE NUMBER
