About the Event
California Poets in the Schools welcomes all poets, ages 18+ to Write On ~ a Generative Poetry Gathering, Wednesdays 9:30am-10:30am on Zoom. This supportive group is meant to help poets to foster their own writing practice, while also building community at the same time.
Each session will include the offering of a writing prompt, followed by 25 minutes of writing time, and 25 minutes of sharing. Sharing is optional. Accepting feedback is optional. Please keep in mind, depending on #'s of participants, there may not be time for each person to share each time.
Terri Glass, longtime CalPoets' Poet-Teacher, will lead most Wednesdays. When Terri cannot lead the group, another CalPoets' Poet-Teacher or staff will lead.
This is set up as a recurring event and the Zoom link will remain the same each week. The Zoom link will be sent to those who register. Reminders (including the Zoom link) will be sent each week only to those who are registered for that week's session.
Note: If you've participated in this generative gathering once, feel free to keep the link and log on automatically without re-registering. Just keep in mind that you won't be sent reminders, unless you are actually registered for that week's session.
