Co-Creative Sessions: Every Day Poetry
July 20 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
This workshop will center on the poetry of our everyday lives – from morning routines to the beauty of an outdoor garden, there is poetry in our surroundings. Led by Sarah Jane Mulvey, the group will explore poems that give us tiny glimpses into the private sanctuaries of poets. We’ll then focus on the beautiful details we might overlook in our own spaces, and how to turn them into poetry. This is a generative workshop – so be prepared to write!
