ONLINE Spontaneous Poetry
Spontaneous Poetry happens when poets write poems within a time constraint for others with their input. Sessions are usually held in public settings like the library, Stephen Avenue, or a train station — but during the pandemic, they can also be online. Spontaneous Poetry lets poets offer poetry to the public in an immediate, personal way, whether generally, on special occasions, or even as a fundraiser. What techniques are known to make the process easier and less stressful? Drawing from the advice of experienced Spontaneous Poets, this writing workshop will empower you to become a Spontaneous Poet before the Zoom ends. AWCS celebrates National Poetry Month from the League of Canadian Poets.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
