bringing your creative voice out to play
Experiential Mentoring + Workshops
As the founder of The Poartry Project, I spent many years loving school and cherishing my classroom time, but it’s the outdoor learning adventures I always remember most. Our workshops and customized summer and after-school mentoring experiences create welcoming, inclusive, encouraging spaces of “no mistakes” where creative voices of all ages and experience levels are given free range to come out and play – outdoors in nature as much as possible. The Poartry Project loves helping lives discover that they are more of a poet, writer, artist, storyteller than they think there are or can be, and it’s our special mission to create experiences that help dismantle and remove the inhibitions and doubts about creativity and “being good enough” that are the barriers to so many people expressing and sharing themselves fully and joyfully.
Our Next Workshop is coming up!
Writing a Healing Poem for Peace & Reflection in Our Changing World
Saturday, August 8th
10 am – 12 pm US eastern
Horsford Gardens & Nursery
Poetry can soothe and heal our fatigued spirits in our changing world. Join poet and “energy artist”, JC Wayne, in the beauty of nature at Horsford Gardens to explore what a “healing poem” is and how to write one as a source of personal peace, refuge and calm. We will draw on the inspiration of nature and discovery of our own inner capacity for wellbeing through the power of words and the “energy of language” to write our poem.
