Workshop 9: Poetry Workshop: The Courage to Rise Up

Finding your poet’s voice with Miranda Pearson and Mary MacDonald.

October 15 | 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.  Fairmont Chateau Whistler | $32

The poet Adrienne Rich said, ‘Art means nothing if it simply decorates the dinner table of the power which holds it hostage.’ Poetry can be written about anything, but it is always about communicating, being heard, and exploring our questions. In this workshop we will look at poems of protest – poetry born out of struggle, poems that unsettle us, poems that speak to change, poems that challenge the reader to make a difference. This workshop will encourage anyone who has something to say – to write their questions into a language and style called poetry – as a way of being heard. This is a workshop for everyone, for the poet within.
