Writing down the bones,

A poetry workshop


Jude Neale


This poetry workshop, led by nationally acclaimed author, Jude Neale, is for novices as well as experienced writers. It will ignite your imagination and free your creativity through writing prompts, games, and exercises.

Everyone will come away with new poems and a deeper connection with language. There will be lots of time to share your work with the group. Bring what you like to write on: notebook or electronic (Jude admits to writing her last six books on the phone.)

Our guest speaker is known for her fun and interactive workshops, so join us and amaze yourself!
