It’s Lit! Poetry Writing as A Source of Illumination

Come join us this summer as we gather to reintegrate ourselves in a generative creative process!

As educators, it is crucial for us to continue to cultivate our own creative writing practice as practitioners of the written word as an art form of illumination. This workshop offers a supportive space to build community through the process of writing exercises meant to charge our creativity through various poetic forms. Sessions will include generative writing exercises which will serve as the foundation for new poetic work. Our main objective is to generate work, and illuminate areas of our creative interests and passions. Time will be allotted for workshop and exchange.
