Come play and experience the fun and freedom of poetry!
All of our workshops are designed to allow you to interact with words in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. There's no need to take yourself too seriously because you can make your own rules or break the rules.
These workshops are open to everyone—whether you are an experienced poet or have never written a single verse. Adults and children of all ages are welcome.
Typically, each workshop will introduce you to a specific type of poem and then provide you with an opportunity to create your own. Bring a sense of play, your creativity, and something to write and color with.
The Landscape Poem:
Place is important. It connects us to our sense of belonging in the world. It anchors us to our self. Some places hold special memories or evoke a certain emotion when we visit.
In this workshop, choose a place you know well. Maybe it's a favorite place to sit in the sun. Or maybe it's your treasured location to relax. Or where you fell in love. You can either attend the workshop from that place or visualize it while you write.
Then we'll use our words to paint a picture of our chosen landscape.
