Literary Partners Program: Spring into Poetry: Writing the World with Poet’s Eyes

A Writing Poetry for Children Workshop

May 4, 2019 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In this small, interactive workshop, two poets—Georgia Heard and Rebecca Kai Dotlich—will help you navigate the tools and skills you need to write children’s poetry by way of craft talks, writing prompts, and looking at a variety of poems written for children. Each day, you’ll spend time writing new poems, and you’ll be given tools and tips for seeing your poems with fresh eyes. This two-day workshop will give you a blueprint for writing poems using imagery, observation, word choice, and imagination to fine-tune your work. You will be invited to read your work to the group and receive impromptu feedback from Georgia and Rebecca. This workshop is perfect for both beginner and advanced poets as well as teachers who will gain insights into teaching poetry by learning the craft from the inside out.
