Online Workshop – Poetry For Songwriters and Poetry-Curious Artists

Fishtrap presents Poetry For Songwriters and Poetry-Curious Artists: An Online Workshop with Beth Wood.

Joni Mitchell said about writer’s block, “When I hit a block I just paint, which is an old crop rotation trick.” Using crop rotation in our creativity practice can bring new energy and perspective to our usual approach.

Are you an artist or songwriter who is curious about poetry? Do you have memories of trying to connect to old poems in school, but feeling confused and uninspired? Consider this your invitation from singer-songwriter-poet Beth Wood to think about poetry in a different way. Poetry is everywhere! And just like songs, poems can lead us to healing, preserve and convey stories, and help us process emotions while connecting with others. In this 2-hour online workshop, we’ll engage in wordplay with writing exercises and games and share our work in a supportive space. You do not have to be a wordsmith to enjoy the world of poetry. And as artists, we can carry forth into our creativity practice some of our discoveries through poetry.

Tuesday, May 7
6:00-8:00pm Pacific Time
Registration: $60 ($55 Fishtrappers)
