Rhymes at the ROM


A Poetry Workshop (not necessarily in Rhyme!)
in one of the most evocative sites in Toronto

ROM skeletons and ghostThe Royal Ontario Museum is a gorgeous storehouse of anthropological, geological, and paleontological information and artifacts. On September 21 you are invited to spend a day of experiencing these “prompts” through sensory, emotional and cognitive ways.

Poets will be given prompts and exercises and encouragement throughout the day designed to help you engage with the bones of your material and your craft.

At the end of the day, there’s an optional reading at a local restaurant (a short walk from the ROM) to try out one of the new poems you’ve created.

Sharing is optional of course.

Date: September 21, 2013
Time: 10:30 to 4:30 (optional reading and beverage follows)
Registration: $70 – covers entrance to the ROM, all workshop activities, and one drink at the Happy Hour Reading afterwards at a local restaurant starting at 5:00 p.m.

Poetry is Community! Experience the connection.

Refunds are available until September 7th minus a $25 administration fee. After September 7 there are no refunds. However, registrations are 100% transferrable to another poet with notification so if you are not able to make it, and you can find another poet to take your place, your registration will be refunded completely.
