Planting Seeds of Mindfulness & Poetry

Join Jerrice Baptiste in the Beatrix Farrand Garden for a short guided visualization for stillness and engaging the senses, then a reading of two poems from well-known poets for inspiration and discussion to start a conversation about how practicing mindfulness can help us arrive at writing poetry. Jerrice will provide the prompts for creative writing and the opportunity for the participants to share their work. Jerrice J. Baptiste has authored seven children’s books and a book of poems for adults, Wintry Mix. Her writing has appeared in The Yale Review, Mantis, The Minetta Review, The Caribbean Writer, & more.
