Invite your muse + Draft poems + Build community
*All times are noted in Eastern Time.
May 2, 2021 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
You are welcome to come and go, to dip in for a single session or stay the whole time, to participate in all/none of the break out sessions. I’ll be letting people in from the waiting room during these times, while you chat in the smaller groups connecting with other poets, grab a coffee, let the dog out, etc.!
Some sessions will use music/sound and some will be silent. *Please turn off your sound if you prefer! I’ll give a visual 5 minute warning before we return.
The prompts will remain on the screen as we write, and you’ll get a pdf which includes all prompts (and a few extras) a few days after our retreat. *When it comes to prompts – take what you like and leave the rest! You are ALWAYS free to follow your muse!
