Poet in Community Workshop
The Poet in Community program offers workshops where students can explore what matters to them through writing and self-expression. But don’t be put off by the word "poet": no special experience is necessary! The workshops are open to all disciplines. Use writing to connect the intellectual, the emotional, the physical and the social.
Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.
