Join James Dewar for a fun, fulfilling, full-day workshop on breaking through the walls that prevent the writing and appreciation of poetry.

What is the difference between poetry and prose?

What is the ‘job’ of good poetry?

Is the difficult practice of writing in rhyme making a comeback?

What are the most popular and interesting forms today?

Why is “surprise” so important to good poetry?

What is SLAM poetry and why is it so popular?

What are the basic techniques of performing poetry?

This is a writing-based, participation-oriented experience.

So come prepared to write and take home poems!
