Writing: Poetry Workshop
In this workshop, we will work together on your poems and also write new poems. This class is designed to help you explore the writer’s craft and also the mysteries of creation. We will read a lot, learn a lot, learn about each other, and hopefully walk away as more magical and more intentional poets.
Bring your imagination, an open mind, and an open heart, and you will complete the workshop with new poems, new inspiration, and new friends. This workshop is an ideal way to connect with other writers from all over, and create your own online cohort of writers who share your passion for creating new work and supporting fellow artists.
