Write the World's Virtual Poetry Workshops invite writers ages 13-19 to connect across continents, level up their craft, and learn from celebrated and caring authors through a variety of poetic genres. Join peers from over 100 countries as you pour your voice and vision into poetry with the help of esteemed poets and educators through Write the World's Global Writing Workshops.
The four distinct Workshop offerings will each take place over the course of three to four 90-minute live Saturday sessions, inviting you to find, raise, use, and share your voice as you explore a variety of genres. All Workshops focus on the art and utility of poetry, and how we can use our writing to advocate, mobilize, unify, resist, connect, and work together to create the world we imagine. Writers of all levels and experiences are welcome.
During workshop sessions, you'll engage in interactive writing activities, connect with peers around the world, and work together to grow your poetry skills. Between workshop sessions, you may be asked to work independently on writing prompts and activities, guided by peer and expert reviews, at your own pace, for approximately 1-2 hours, depending on your facilitator's workshop plan. You will also receive individualized feedback that will strengthen your poetry.
