About this event

Intention and action are two different things. Learn to channel your fear into poetry.

  • Discover a safe, nonjudgemental space to banish your fears and release your dark side.
  • Exorcise your demons on paper and keep them there.
  • Then walk into the light.

You will learn to pour your emotions into paper and let your pain go poem by poem. You will produce one or more poems at the workshop.
