Poetry Month at the library. Poetry workshop on Saturday with Drs. Roberto Arrindell | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – This month the library will be hosting a poetry workshop and a poetry contest. Learn the magic of words, rhyme and expression in the library’s educational workshop and/or compete for wonderful prizes by submitting your heartfelt poem or poetic song in the library’s poetry contest. In addition to the upcoming poetry activities, the library is also expanding its e-book collection with more books about poetry.

Be sure to sign up for the upcoming poetry workshop taking place on Saturday, June 12th with expert university lecturer, educator and poet Drs. Roberto Celestino Arrindell. You must register in advance, as space is limited. During this workshop, you will learn how to write, read and understand poetry and how it can allow you to use metaphor, imagery and symbolic language to express yourself. Poetry can allow young as well as old to describe experiences or a side of themselves that they would otherwise not share with the world. Poetry takes on many forms; it can be a sonnet, a haiku, a rhyming play or even dub, calypso or rap, just to name a few examples. There are so many ways that you can use poetry as a creative outlet. Learn how to harness the incredible power of poetry in the upcoming workshop and register in advance with Ms. Richardson via email or phone at orders@sxmlibrary.org or +1721 542-2970.

The second stage of the library’s poetry month will kick off with a poetry contest in which you can win wonderful prizes. How would you like to win a 3-night staycation at Belair Beach Hotel Oceanfront resort overlooking Little Bay Beach from your own private terrace?! It’s yours if you submit your winning poem to the library via email at info@sxmlibrary.org or in person at the front desk at # 3 Walter Nisbeth Road, Philipsburg.

Don’t miss out on these great opportunities for you or your children to express yourselves, grow intellectually and spiritually and show your talent to the world. Those 14 years and over can register for the poetry workshop before Friday, the 11th of June via orders@sxmlibrary.org and persons of all ages are invited to send in their poem for the poetry contest before the 14th of June to info@sxmlibrary.org.
