Overview

Make your voice heard with poetry and jazz!

Unlock the connection between poetry and jazz in this free City Verses workshop for adults 18+. In NJPAC’s online classroom, we’ll discuss Jazz Poetry from the Harlem Renaissance to the Beat Generation up to today. We’ll read poems, talk about them and write our own. And of course, we’ll set the mood with some great music! Our faculty includes poets from Rutgers-Newark MFA creative writing program—and they can’t wait to share their love of writing with you. No experience necessary.

Want more avenues to share? Perform your poetry at our Jersey Fresh @ Home open mic series!
