Framingham State University professor emeritus Alan Feldman will lead a poetry workshop at the Framingham Public Library every Tuesday in January, beginning Jan. 9. The workshops will take place in the Trustees Room of the library from 7 to 9 p.m. The drop-in class welcomes poets of all ages and experience levels. Participants are welcome to attend one or more sessions. Each workshop will begin with a discussion of a topic in poetry before a brief in-class assignment. Attendees may also bring their own work in, if they wish for it to be discussed.
