On-The-Spot Poetry

I want to bring some wordy wonder to downtown Northampton! My vision involves setting up a typewriter and table downtown and doing two things: composing original poems on the spot for people, or helping them compose their OWN poems on the spot.

I'm a writer and teacher, and I've wanted to do this for awhile. I'd pick some of the last gorgeous fall days we have coming up, and an additional one for Bag Day on November 20, when the streets are full of enthusiastic holiday shoppers. I think poems could make it more fun and magical.
