Title: Poetry Sanctuary Day with James Dewar
Location: Whitby, Ontario, Canada
Description: James Dewar is pleased to announce that starting in January, 2014, he will be leading a monthly poetry writing sanctuary at the Uplands Writing Retreat. This full day retreat will include a lesson on a specific aspect of the craft of poetry, provide writing prompts to inspire participants to explore these aspects, and provide lots of silent time for writing and/or revision.
Participants will also have the opportunity to share their work in group readings, and receive private feedback from James if they choose that option. The objectives are to learn something new about the craft of writing poetry, write new poems, work on revision and share poetry together in a welcoming and inclusive group setting.
