The Poetry Initiative
Anyone who knows me, will tell you that I adore poetry. I can spend hours lost in a poem. Writing poetry is a reflective practice. It requires deep thought, attention to detail and an awareness of emotion. Writing and reading a poem is an act of mindfulness. Poetry teaches us about ourselves and about others.
This year, I will be launching a poetry initiative - a space for teens.. It's a chance to enjoy life in the slow lane...think haiku on a typewriter.
Workshops will be available for local high schools.
