Sundress Academy for the Arts: Poetry of Stillness: A Writing Workshop

Category: Classes & workshops, Free event and Literature & readings

The Sundress Academy for the Arts workshop series is proud to present “Poetry of Stillness.” This workshop will be led by Danielle Hanson on Wednesday July 8, 2020, from 6:00 to 7:30pm ET via Zoom. Those who RSVP to the Facebook event will receive a Zoom link and password. This workshop is free and open to the public.

A writing experience for people who have been affected by COVID either through work or personal connections, this workshop is designed to focus on a quiet moment and find beauty and peace in something small. Workshop participants will read several peaceful, beautiful poems, and then be guided through writing a poem of their own. No previous writing experience is needed, but even experienced writers should enjoy the time of focus and meditation.
