Writing Poetry


Poetry workshop

Have you ever wanted to explore the place within you where silence sometimes bursts into language and then falls back into silence and wonder? This is the territory of the mystics but is the inheritance of every human being. We are all creative beings who inhabit both interior and exterior worlds, the inner and the outer, and these parts of us are not separate. In this day-long workshop, participants will be guided through short, interactive writing exercises that allow both beginning and developing writers to explore their emerging integral selves. There will be opportunity to reflect on the results of these exercises with the group and receive constructive feedback in a safe and nourishing atmosphere. Co-sSponsored by Nakusp Library and Arrow Lakes Writer's Group.

To Register  Call 250.265.4077null250.265.4077; stop at 311 Broadway Mon 9-3, Tues – Thurs 11 – 3; or visit nakuspce@selkirk.ca
