In this 6-week course local poet Andrew Warner will guide participants in weekly poetry prompts and writing activities for those who are beginning to write, currently writing, or who don’t identify as writers. Participants are encouraged to explore writing poetry through a variety of prompts that will help you practice calm in the present, learn from your past, and share stories more confidently.
All experiences of poetry are welcome. Each week Andrew will teach different formats, styles, lessons, and poetic devices that you can use in your everyday life. Whether you’re writing your first poetry book or wanting to get back into your favourite pastime, join writers of all levels in this safe space.
Registration is per household. Feel free to grab a family member or roommate and take class together!
