Poetry Writing Workshop for Children Ages: 8-13 years Duration: 2 hours
Ever tried to write a poem? No? Why? Did you think writing a poem was too hard? Did you worry about never being able to find a rhyme? Or did you just not know how to begin? Well, whatever your problem was, it must be solved. Because writing poems are just too much fun, and we dont want you to miss out on it.
Like dancing and painting and singing, poems are just a way to express yourself, your thoughts, and your attitude. And, the best way to get better and better at poetry is to get verse and verse in other words, just start writing! In the course of this hands-on workshop, author, editor and reading champion Vidya Mani will show you just why rhyme has a reason!
