The Great Poetry Workshop

See what people are saying

  • “The poetry workshop was great. A very tactile approach on how and where to find inspiration. The idea of a sensory approach to writing is great for any kind of writing workshop.”

  • “I enjoyed the poetry writing class very much. It was just a little too short :-)”

  • “Mouths pucker as six people suck lemons. ‘What sounds does this taste make you make? Can you locate words for the sensation?’ asks U.S. poet and workshop leader Ann Koshel van Buren. It’s the first exercise in an afternoon spent exploring the writing and sensuality of poetry. It ends, reluctantly, sipping hot chocolate. ‘You couldn’t get a more delicious introduction,’ sighed one participant.”
