Spontaneous Poetry Writing Workshops

Come play with words!

During this experimental poetic experience, you’ll be guided through a variety of writing exercises to encourage you to explore your writing and trust your voice. You’ll learn to edit intuitively, respecting your style while articulating your thoughts.

The method we use is simple and will help you embrace your inner poet while putting aside your inner critic. You can apply this not only to poetry writing, but also to other projects and your personal communications.

By the end of the workshop, you'll have your own completed poem. No previous poetry experience is necessary.

Available in person, or as a virtual experience at schools, offices, for team bonding and building at creative corporate retreats, library events, social groups, conferences, or anywhere people who love words gather.
