Birth Story Poems ~ A workshop

In this workshop, we begin to crack open the birth story one poem at a time. With simple writing prompts you will recall small moments in your story, transforming them into simple 3-line poems. Even if you’ve never written a poem in your life, you’ll be surprised at how this process writes the poems for you. We finish the session off by moving a couple of your poems into a handmade book or *chapbook that you can carry away in your pocket.

You will need your hands free now and then to write and work with your chapbook, so please feel free to bring your pre-crawling baby. Otherwise, see if you can arrange childcare or bring a friend to help so you can have your hands free.

This workshop can be arranged for your own group in a venue of your choice, or inquire about having a time and place organized for your group. The session can also be divided into 2 parts so that you have a week to process the poems before we work on the chapbook.

All supplies are provided.

*A chapbook is a small collection of poetry, generally no more than 40 pages, that often centers on a specific theme.
