What: In this inspiring three-hour workshop, join poet Vanessa Shields as she leads writers through a brief history of poetry, discussions about the critical role poetry plays in our lives, and how to find and cultivate our own poetic voices so we can write powerful poetry and share it with the world. As Shields travels back in time, writers will learn how to write some of the different forms of poems that have been created through history. By learning from our past poets, recognizing the poets of ‘today’, and finding our own inner poet this introduction to poetry is hands-and-hearts on! We will read, write, discuss and share poetry!
