This writing workshop is about finding sparks and drawing on their energy. As artists, half the struggle is knowing where to start and where to go.

Participants will leave with several new poem drafts as well as a plan to revise and keep creating. Be prepared to surprise yourself. Beginning and experienced poets welcome.
