Unity Days Event: Write to Heal Program

Calling all aspiring poets!

JMRL, in partnership with WriterHouse and The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, will host a free poetry writing event open to poets of all ages.

On August 9, from 12-1:30pm, poets are invited to take part in #TheWrite2Heal program, which is part of Charlottesville Unity Days and designed to bring the community together.

During the event, poets will be encouraged to write a brief poem or prose using the theme of “on the wings of unity”.

Each poem will be written on a piece of paper shaped like a feather and will be attached to a sculpture of a cardinal, created by local artist and poet Jum Jirapan. The cardinal sculpture will be on display at the Central Library throughout August.

#TheWrite2Heal will be held in the Madison Room at the Central Library and attendees can register by emailing programs@writerhouse.org no later than August 8.

Light refreshments will be served during the event.

For more information, please call WriterHouse at 434.296.1922.
