You are here



It is exciting to experience the revival of poetry everywhere in our society today. In this evolving context, you are invited to come and practice your skills and to share them with other people. This workshop will bring you up to date on what is happening in poetry and will give you the opportunity to refine your skills and share your writing with other people. The first half of the workshop will focus on the techniques used in poetry, while the second will allow you to apply these techniques in your work. I think of poetry as some kind of wilderness within. The more we listen to it, the more it responds in overtones that come to define us as writers. No experience is required.  Just bring your lust for words.

Michel Thérien is from Ottawa. He has published 10 books of poetry. His work has been translated in several languages and has received national and international recognition. In his travels, he teaches creative writing and enjoys giving conferences and workshops related to the art of writing poetry.
