The Wick Poetry Center’s mission is to encourage new voices. We are eager to hear yours.
We are offering workshops for the Veterans led by poet and educator, Katie Daley, who has done extensive community teaching. Each session is self-contained and aims to help you practice telling your story. We will explore and produce various short-forms of expressive writing. We will come together to write. To share. Or, simply, to listen.
Poet Terry Blackhawk says: The world, finally, tries to rob us in lots of ways. I like poems to do a bit of taking back for us. This is what we’ll be aiming for in these one-hour expressive writing workshops: to do a bit of taking back. Through conversations sparked by existing poems and writing exercises designed to hotwire our pens to our imaginations, we will set words on fire, we will take great leaps, we will write our way into the moments and across the great divides.
Whole Health Artful Living Program is in collaboration with the VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System
