Poetry is a wonderful way to convey emotions, share ideas, and entertain the audience all in one. Join a local Y member and widely-published poet, Terry Busch, to discover your creative writing side.
Learn about poetry styles, examine the use of poetics in poetry and prose-poems, and practice writing with guided prompts. Share your poems and discuss the experience of discovering your creative writing side with the group.
