Joy of Creation: A Generative Poetry Workshop
**Please note all times are listed in EST**
Art is everywhere and you can create a poem or story from just about anything. Have you ever written a poem from a list? Have you ever used your senses to stimulate your imagination? Have you ever stared at the pictures on the wall and wondered what they are showing you? Have you ever tried to summarize your life story in just a few words?
Tanya shows writers at any stage how to turn a simple shopping list into poetry, how to compose 45-word, even 6-word poems using your senses, how to tell the story behind the pictures on your walls, and how to get in touch with your creativity by finding joy in the everyday!
