There is a poetry style, purpose and genre to suit EVERYONE.
This workshop looks at community building through poetry, and how to renew, enjoy and discover not only the poems of others but the poems within you, as well as introducing you to poems you can compose with others.
This workshop is for grown ups, but should give plenty of ideas to work with children to develop a life long relationship with the powers of poetry.

These works were created in a two hour workshop with June Perkins and Helene Magisson for the Summer of Reading Program with the Brisbane libraries, held January 2018. The host libraries were Chermside and Toowong.
The above photographs are shared with consent of artist/writers and taken by Helene Magisson.
A big thank you to the staff at both libraries who assisted with the set up of the room and other practicalities as well as giving us warm introductions.
Thanks also to the wonderful children.
