Inspiring Workshops for Writers

Ever wonder how to read a poem?
Poet Bardia Sinaee will uncover the mysteries of truly understanding and enjoying poetry in a short workshop, How to Read a Poem. Discover the ways to unpack and interpret the poem’s form and content, its sounds and images.

Ten Things I Hate About Me
Poet and composer Benjamin Hackman will guide participants on an exploration of personal identity, and help highlight some of the ways in which the poetic process may be used to renegotiate parts of one’s self in order to overcome creative and emotional blocks.

Join us as we gather to honour the stories and the voices of North York.

Saturday, September 30th
2pm – 4pm
