Dive into poetry through this immersive, introductory workshop! Together, we will build our poetry toolboxes by exploring a range of techniques and forms, connect our work to that of poets past and present, and explore how poetry can empower writers and readers. Whether you hope to write poetry that expresses appreciation or advocacy, that sows unity, or action, or accountability, or even if you’re looking to bust through writer’s block by trying something new, we look forward to working with you! No prior poetry experience necessary.
