Calling all poets! We all have something to say, and we say it best when we say it in verse.
Join Owen Sound poet Richard-Yves Sitoski for two workshops for everyone interested in exploring poetry. Novices can get their feet wet and more experienced practitioners can up their game. Together we'll explore ways of getting over writer's block, the use of prompts to get the juices flowing, different modes and kinds of verse, and techniques for honing style. Monday's workshop will deal with written verse and Tuesday's will focus on spoken word.
Cost: $45 each day, or $75 for both days
