NEW! Writing Studio (Ages 12-15)

Sorry, this class has been canceled. Please call us if you have any questions: 231-334-6112.

Poetry! Anyone can be a poet! In these four sessions, we will dispel some myths about writing poetry and ALL of the fear! We’ll start by writing a couple of poems that have a defined structure. Then we’ll brainstorm for poetry topics. A poem may be hiding in that old beach towel hanging on the hook in the hallway, in dad’s old work boots, or in the soccer ball in a closet. Poetry topics are everywhere! Come to preserve your memories and impressions and to reveal a little about who you are. Bring your laptop or IPad, if you have one.
