Show the world with words
your courage, your strength, your youth.
For this is our hope.
The Poetry Initiative
The writing of poetry is a form of reflective practice. It requires deep thought, attention to detail and an awareness of emotion. Writing a poem is an act of mindfulness. Poetry teaches us about ourselves and about others. I like poetry because it is musical: it has rhythm - a way of speaking that feels authentic and honest.
In this fast paced, chaotic world, poetry can be a safe space to express thoughts and connect with the thoughts of others.
This year, I will be launching a poetry initiative. It's a chance to enjoy life in the slow lane...think haiku on a typewriter. Watch this space (or enter your email below).
Workshops available for local high schools.
