Love reading poetry? Enjoy writing poems of your own? Maybe
you’ve always wanted to write poetry, but tend to have a tough time getting started. Or perhaps you have a lot on your mind and long for a way to express yourself as you deal with distance
learning, missing your friends, and an uncertain summer. Well, look no further! You have found your sanctuary in Unleashing Your Poetic Potential! Explore terrific published poems, create shared poems along with the other poets within our group, and learn about different forms of poetry that will have even the most reluctant poet writing! We’ll learn about or review different poetic techniques from alliteration to onomatopoeia, and we’ll tap into our playful side as we have fun with the English language. By the end of the week, you will have created a personal poetry anthology to treasure for years to come.
Put aside your writing frustrations,
Your purely imagined literary limitations.
For creative motivation
In this coron-isolation
