Virtual IPRC: Youth Poetry Workshop

August 1, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

$15 – $20
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Teen Poetry Workshop

Sliding scale: $15-20

These youth poetry workshops are for everyone, whether you currently write, or are curious to try! We are going to be focused on reading, listening, and discussing poems from many different poets and writers. This will help get our creative inspiration flowing and help us to learn about the different styles of poetry, which there are many! Most of the written work we will do is free form unless we choose to delve into a specific style together. We will work with prompts, group writing exercises, and explore free/continuous writing! We will experiment with tools in our writing practice, this includes oracle cards, objects, and spoken word! In addition to a notebook and headphones, if you have objects that inspire creativity, poems you love, and want to share, have them with you when we begin! Finally, find a quiet private place where you can write/ reflect without any interruption or inhibition! Sharing and engagement are helpful but are always optional… this is a safe pressure-free space to learn and create together. Let’s get free!
