Poetry Writing Workshops

Embrace your inner poet!

Poems make wonderful gifts, and can also help us clarify our own thoughts and bring focus. In this engaging workshop, participants will join me to learn how to easily create their own personalized poems.

I’ll share my best tips and tricks for crafting spontaneous poems which can be heartfelt, emotional and empowering, but also fun and cheeky. It’s up to the participant. And the best part? Absolutely no poetry experience is necessary.

This unforgettable experience will leave participants with an original poem that they can share with someone special or treasure for themselves.

Available in person and online for schools, corporate activations, team bonding and building, library events, social groups, conferences, or anywhere people who love words gather.
