PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Poetry Workshop: The Creative Muse

    Saturdays, 15 February – 29 February 2020

Led by Oakville-based poet and author Josie Di Sciascio-Andrews, this course will introduce participants to a variety of approaches for tapping into one's creative writing capacity. Drawing on the material of our everyday lives—along with nature, art, music and other sources of stimulation—participants will learn various techniques for translating the world around them into poetry. Various contemporary poetic forms will be introduced and considered, with participants learning how to critique and edit their own work for maximum word power, clarity and brevity of expression. No previous creative writing experience necessary. All materials will be supplied.

This program is generously supported by our Public Programs Partner Chubb.
