In this three-hour workshop, we will attempt to shake off some of the winter chill by writing through a series of prompts together. We will read poems that will serve as inspiration and jumping-off points, and write in response to catalysts such as images, found text, questions, objects, sounds, and more. The goal is to warm up, experiment, and generate material – you can expect to leave with a few full notebook pages.

This workshop is open to all levels; no previous experience writing poetry is required.

**This workshop is now full. Thank you for your interest.**
