Poetry and the Body: A Literary Salon with January Gill O'Neil

Hope you can join me for this salon!

JHPF Literary Salon
Poetry and the Body: A Literary Salon with January Gil O'Neil
Sunday, January 23; 3-6 p.m. -- workshop, refreshments, panel discussion
Host: Richard Jeffrey Newman
Guest Panelist: January Gil O'Neil
Location: Garden School, 33-16 79th St., Jackson Heights, NY


The Jackson Heights Poetry Festival offers poetry salons and panel discussions. These events are open to all ages, interests, and skill levels, including beginners and nonpoetry writing observers. Participation in workshops is not required to attend the panel discussions.

Poetry and the Body
Poems about the body are never about the body. They are about history, intimacy, transformation, difference, vulnerability, suffering, strength, sensuality, and more. What does the body represent in a poetic context? What story does the body tell? This workshop and reading will "sing the body electric" as we celebrate the glorious human form and all its manifestations.

This event is free. Sign up today!
