Our workshop The Craft and Heart of Writing Poetry is back again this year! Led by Rebecca Kai Dotlich and Georgia Heard, the goal is to bring poets together to delve into the heart, joy, and craft of poetry. At the workshop, you will:
Enjoy plenty of interaction, direction, and free creative writing time.
Focus on all elements of poetry, from the importance of word choice to surprising metaphors.
Complete writing exercises to inspire new poems.
Share in group discussions to brainstorm ideas, share our writing process, and generate original poems.
