Spontaneous Poetry Writing Workshops

You'll be encouraged to play with words and trust your voice.

In this guided workshop, you'll learn to create spontaneous, personalized poems using tips and tricks that'll help you organize and articulate your thoughts clearly. 

My name is Cathy Thorne and I write custom poems on a typewriter at weddings and events. The method I 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 will have your own completed poem, plus the skills to write poems independently. Your poems can be heartfelt, emotional and empowering, or fun and cheeky. It’s up to you! And the best part? No previous poetry experience is necessary.

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