Calling all poets! Watch the full moon as it rises over Newport State Park and compose a poem in response to the experience. You will have some time to both write and revise your poems. Send your poem to Write On by September 1 to be installed on the Poetry Trail. On Saturday, September 8, under the dark skies of the new moon, participants will gather to read their poems.
Poets will meet at Parking Lot #3 of Newport State Park (a park sticker is required) to walk to the beach for the 8:01 pm rise of the full moon. Bring along a pen or pencil, paper, and a sturdy writing surface. (A limited number of supplies will be available.) If you like, bring a chair.
This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience!
