Nourish yourself with words, wisdom and community in poetry together. We will explore how poetry is food for the soul while combining various ingredients of poetic forms in the welcoming and safe atmosphere Renee creates for aspiring writers of all levels. As we look to the natural world for a reflection of self, the essential spirit of herbs, flowers, vegetables, grasses and all available wild things will inspire us. Guided imagery, exploratory prompts and technical cues are thoughtfully presented for your personal enjoyment of the fun of writing – a path to expression that will leave you surprised by your skills and satisfied with the process. Bring you favorite journal and pen. “I am that flower, that mint, that columbine,” wrote Shakespeare in Love’s Labour’s Lost, Act 5, Scene 2 – and so are we all.
