In this generative workshop, participants craft collaborative poems in the shape of Dorchester’s most iconic architecture. Like its namesake, a Triple Decker Poem builds community through collaboration. All participants will have the chance to write and reflect together on what it means to share space—in a neighborhood and in a creative work. This session is facilitated by U-Meleni Mhlaba Adebo, Lynn Drew, Anna Ross, Candelaria Silva-Collins, Aaron Devine, and Alexa Koch, members of Write on the DOT, a reading series and literary platform that supports and promotes local writing in Dorchester.
