Poetry in The Gardens: Poetry of Grief and Healing

    • Drawing on the remarkable beauty of the Gardens on Spring Creek, these workshops offer participants of all ages and experience levels an opportunity to take in the extraordinary beauty around them and their personal experiences to create powerful and vivid poems. Using celebrated examples of both traditional and contemporary poetry, participants will discuss techniques such as metaphor, imagery, sound and allusion as well as introducing basic techniques for creating musicality within a poem.
