As educators, it can sometimes be difficult to find time to practice and nurture within ourselves the creativity we teach and foster in our students each day. Focusing on poetry and creative nonfiction, this workshop aims to help us all reconnect with our creativity and reinvigorate our love for words and the creative process. We will read published works for inspiration and direction and will then spend dedicated time each week generating new work that speaks to our own interests and passions. There will also be opportunities to workshop and share our writing as a means of building community and strengthening our work through collaborative discussion. All experience levels are welcome!
