Form got you fuddled? Stressing over-stressed/unstressed syllables? Come redefine poetry with a workshop that focuses on exploring personal interests and ignoring the so-called rules. We’ll look at YA examples of free-verse poetry as inspiration and have the opportunity to write some of our own. If you feel like you just don’t “get” poetry, or if you’re struggling to put your ideas on the page—this workshop is for you.
“Jennifer Bushroe once swore on a statue of Peter Pan that she’d never grow up. She fulfills this oath daily by dancing like nobody’s watching, eating dessert before dinner, and writing stories and poems for all ages. You can find Jennifer on Twitter, and her writing in On Spec, Space & Time, The Literary Hatchet, Polu Texni, DreamForge Magazine, and more.”
Join in via Zoom to learn more about how to write poetry and meet up with others who like to write.
This workshop is intended for grades 6th through 12th. You must register to get the Zoom link emailed to you.
