In this generative poetry workshop, participants will create original works in response to prompts provided by the facilitator. We will begin each workshop by reading and discussing the work of an established poet. After time set aside to focus on writing, participants will then share their work. This workshop is open to all, even those who have never written a poem before.

Writing for Restoration – a workshop inspired by Restorative Justice* principles
Tuition: $30
Saturday, 1-5pm, 10/24
Facilitator: Erin Fried
Location: Collaboratory, Hillman City

In this generative workshop, we will examine conflict as a critical element of fiction, poetry, and personal essay using skills related to restorative justice: accountability, community, cultural competence, empathy, and nonviolent communication. Over four hours, we will engage in a mix of discussion, reading, and writing exercises as we explore such concepts as character development, conflict resolution, point of view, dialogue, descriptive writing, and denouement.

*Restorative Justice is an approach to conflict that focuses on healing and considers the context of harm rather than focusing solely on the acts involved. Learn more here.
