This workshop is open to youth in the 6th-12th grade age range.
A few lines can be a revolution in a small cup. This workshop is an invitation to lift the lid on what you might find there, on what you might put there. We’ll explore short form poetry, ancient to modern, Sappho to Dylan. You’ll have a chance to find out what the page wants to write in the container of your own life.
