Writing and Poetry Workshops for Kids at the Blue Hill Public Library

All Day
Blue Hill Public Library
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614

Blue Hill Public Library and Word: Blue Hill Literary Festival will present six free workshops for kids at the library on Friday and Saturday, October 19th and 20th, as part of a larger literary festival that will be going on around town.

Three of the workshops at the library are aimed at teens and will include “poetry slam” coaching and performances. There will be two author workshops for kids on Saturday; one for kids ages 4 to 8 with local author Bundy Boit and illustrator Deb Belyea with their new book, Letter by Fairy Post (participants will make fairy crowns!); and one for kids 8 to 12 years in which they will learn how to draw animals with award-winning illustrator Hazel Mitchell as she sketches “Toby”— the dog from her book of the same name. There will also be a writing workshop for kids 6 to 18 years of age by the Telling Room, a nonprofit writing center in Portland, Maine, dedicated to the idea that children and young adults are natural storytellers.

For the times and further details on these workshops, interested persons can check the library’s web calendar at www.bhpl.net. Word: Blue Hill Literary Festival will have other workshops around town that do have a charge—for more information see www.wordfestival.org. These presentations are free and open to everyone. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
