Event description
Poet Vanessa Shields will discuss poetry throughout history, and inspire writers to find their own powerful poetic voice.

About this Event

Join poet Vanessa Shields as she leads writers through a brief history of poetry, discusses the critical role poetry plays in our lives, and explores how to find and cultivate our own poetic voices so we can create powerful poetry to share with the world. As Vanessa travels back in time, participants will learn how to write different forms of poetry that have been created throughout history.

By learning from past poets, recognizing the poets of today, and finding our own inner poet, this introduction is hands-and-hearts on! We will read, write, discuss and share poetry. Please bring along your favourite poem (written by a poet) and your writing tools.
