Hosted by poet Lynn Davidson, this poetry and islands workshop will offer exercises to help you write poems about islands, or to islands, or even in the voice of islands. We will wonder about whether poems are a kind of island of words on the page, what islands mean to us, and how we can we capture our – imagined or real – experience of islands on the page.
