Poetry Workshop September 21: Rhymes at the ROM


I’m delighted to announce that James and I are facilitating a writing workshop at the beautiful and historic Royal Ontario Museum. This has been in the works for a long time – I’m delighted it has finally come to fruition!

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 artefacts. On September 21 we will 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 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
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.

In the summer of 2013 I was invited to do a TEDtalk on “Shining the light on our Changing Communities”. I talked about the therapeutic writing program I do with incarcerated women. You can view the talk here.
