Join Ben Berman as he leads festival attendees in innovative, fun, and stimulating poetry exercises. These unique exercises have been used in Grub Street’s multiweek poetry courses, and generated numerous published poems. The goal is to complete 2-4 exercises in an hour, leaving time for attendees to share their work aloud if they wish. You will receive supportive feedback, and suggestions for how to make the poems better, helping writers with common mistakes. Any critique will be given in a gentle and encouraging way. Even if you are not a published or practicing poet, this session will inspire you to want to create poems of your own.
