A292: Introduction to Creative Writing (Poetry) in Splash 2017 (Apr. 29, 2017)
Whether you write poems all the time, or you've never written a poem in your life, this workshop is a chance to learn more about the art of poetry, and to think about what stories you want to tell. We'll practice writing exercises that will help you write poems inspired by your life, the world, politics, music, art, sports, history, and more. Whether you like poetry on the page, on the stage (spoken word, poetry slam), or in music (song lyrics, hip hop), this workshop will help you dive deeper into your creative process. You'll leave with writing prompts and resources to continue honing your craft after the workshop is over.
