Poetry For Beginners: A Writing Workshop

With Pragya Bhagat


Get started on your poetry writing journey with a strong foundation of all the tools and techniques needed to write soulful poetry

With Pragya Bhagat
- Spoken-word poet and author of Yarn: An Interwoven Memoir



The Poetry For Beginners workshop will focus on bringing out your inner poet. Whether you’re just curious about poetry or are looking to hone your performing skills, you will work together to create, edit, and perform poetry with your peers and facilitator Pragya Bhagat.

As part of the 8-hour course, you will have both reading and writing assignments to build your logical, linguistic, and emotional intelligence. There will also be spaces for reflection and feedback in each session.

Poetry is meant to be enjoyed. Throughout the course, you’ll be reading poets from diverse backgrounds, including women, people of colour, and those from the LGBTQ community. So join Pragya Bhagat in this journey as we reflect, grow, and have fun.
