    Igniting Creativity: A Four-Week Workshop on Writing Poetry Date: Saturday, September 7, 2019 Time: 1:00 pm-3:30 pm Location: Equinox Village Fee: $75

    Many of us have the idea that poetry is some abstract, inaccessible craft reserved for those in obscure academic circles. As this workshop will reveal, however, beautiful and moving poetry can emerge from the details of everyday life. Each week, we will work from examples and prompts that invite us to turn the so-called ordinary objects, images and memories of our lives into fuel for extraordinary art that reaches out and touches others. We will work together in a safe, non-judgmental space, sharing our writing and encouraging each other to uncover those essential, mindful moments we might otherwise have ignored. All skill levels are welcome; you just need a pen, paper and an open mind!
