The Poetry Canteen

Fernandina Little Theatre presents a new project at the theatre called “The Poetry Canteen”, a monthly gathering of people who love poetry and want to share and learn in a relaxed environment. The first gathering is to be held on July 8 from 6:30 TO 7:30 p.m. with future meetings held the second Tuesday of each month.

Participants are asked to bring a poem to share, one that speaks to you or one you have written yourself. Selections should not exceed five minutes. Further discussion is optional and will be directed by the interests of the attendees. Nola Perez and Marilyn Wesley are the facilitators. This is a gathering to celebrate the joys and possibilities of poetry in a positive and casual setting.
