People Writing Poems :: Writing Through Winter
Winter is a wonderful time for writing. The sun slants in on things that normally wouldn’t see light. This season is conducive for transformation, looking inward and a little magic. We can pause, reflect, brush away what’s unnecessary and drift into the worlds ready to be accessed simply by picking up the pen.
Writing poems is a way to sort out your moving days. Writing allows you to access personal rhythms, images, your voice and be touched by the poem itself. In return, the poem influences your mornings, afternoons, nights.
In this writing group each week you’ll receive prompts and write. You’ll share last week’s writing (or current project). You’ll read poets who write in different forms, leaning toward women writers, poets of color, and poets who stir your heart. You’ll receive weekly individual written feedback and reading suggestions from Katharine.
This poetry writing workshop is a gentle way to celebrate and share writing. The group can serve as sanctuary in these, our times.
