Need a creative way to express your feelings about the pandemic? With wit, wisdom, and compassion, poets everywhere are coping and responding through verse. This two-session virtual workshop will introduce the attendees to some of the fine poetry currently being published. In the second session, attendees will have an opportunity to write their own poems (or begin them) through guided exercises. Sharing work is never forced, but is welcomed and encouraged.


September 24th, 1pm-2pm (EST)

October 1st, 1pm-2pm (EST)

This workshop is part of “The Human Museum,” an Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation project supported by Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
