Here's how our session will unfold:

  • Introduction to Poetry: We'll start by discussing what poetry is and the different types of poems. We'll talk about rhymes, rhythms, and the creative ways poets use words to express their feelings and ideas.
  • Imagery and Descriptive Language: We'll explore how to paint vivid pictures with words using imagery and descriptive language. We'll play some fun word association games to spark creativity.
  • Writing Haikus: Haikus are short and sweet poems originating from Japan. We'll learn about their structure and themes, and you'll have a chance to write your own haikus.
  • Poetry Slam: A friendly poetry competition! If you're up for it, you can share your favourite poem or one you've written during the workshop.
