About the Event

Join Jasmin Kaur for an intimate poetry writing workshop where you will hone your creative skills and recieve feedback on your writing from a small, supportive group of peers. This workshop will take place over two sessions. Please note the times for both sessions as your participation will be needed at both.

Session 1: Introduction to Poetry Writing

Writers will be guided through creative writing prompts to spark inspiration and will be introduced to a selection of creative writing strategies to build meaning and impact in their poems. By the end of the session, writers will be familar with the group workshop process for session 2 and will be prepared to submit their selection of 3 poems for the group workshopping session in week two. After the Zoom session, participants will have a week to annotate and peer edit their fellow writers' poem submissions and prepare for group editorial discussion in session 2.

Date: Saturday, November 21st

Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM PST

Session 2: Group Workshop

In this longer workshop, writers will begin with a 10 minute free write to tap into their creativity. They will then follow a traditional creative writing workshop structure to provide and recieve feedback on their writing from their peers. Group workshop sessions are empowering, compassionate and intended to build writers up rather than tear them down. Each writer will recieve an equal amount of feedback time and will be invited to ask questions to their peers about strategies for writing improvement.

Date: Saturday, November 28th

Time: 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM PST
