In this workshop, poets will practice their craft through weekly exercises highlighting one or a few elements of poetry.

While I am not a licensed therapist, I am trained in trauma-informed social-emotional learning and mindfulness. I use this training to mitigate harm, provide an inclusive, social justice aware, and supportive environment, and hold space for sensitive topics that may arise.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
I share age-appropriate (12-17) poems that may contain mention of more mature topics. And while I do not censor the writers' topics, some violence, reference to weapons, war, drugs, alcoholism, or other sensitive content may come up, I ask that if this is the case, that writers submit their writing at least 24 hour beforehand to me and I can assess whether it is something they can share. If the writing is appropriate, I will ask the writer to provide a trigger warning so that others in the group may opt out of reading/listening.
