Is pressed by unseen feet, and ghosts return

T.S. Eliot, To Walter De La Mare
Ghosts are a metaphor for remembrance, connecting us to worlds we cannot know and can only imagine. Poems about ghosts and the otherworldly abound, from Edgar Allen Poe's classic "The Raven," to Emily Dickinson's "The Soul has Bandaged moments," to the 3 a.m. dream-scrawls of our notebooks. Visions and visitations, spirits and apparitions, dream-states and muses, imaginings of a world to come—we welcome them all in this shared group reading, led by the Jamaica Pond Poets.
Members of the Jamaica Pond Poets (Dorothy Derifield, Holly Guran, Carolyn Gregory, Audrey Henderson, Susanna Kittredge, Alice Kociemba, Dorian Kotsiopoulos, Jennifer Markell, and Sandee Storey) will read their own otherworldly poems (as well as some favorites) and then the reading will be a themed open mike for audience members to share poems on the subject.
