Digging Deeper: How to Write Poetry About Tough Topics with Maddie Mitchell Wednesdays, January 25–March 1, 5–6pm • FREE


AGES 14 & UP: This class will focus on writing poetry about triggering topics. Teens typically begin wanting to explore their psyche by navigating their trauma, mental illness, growing up, and discovering themselves. Many of these topics end up being rather difficult to talk about, and young poets may struggle with phrasing their thoughts in a constructive manner. Poetry has become increasingly more popular in therapy contexts to help people cope and open up, so learning how to do so in a healthy way is vital. Join published poet and former Young Women Writers Project & Poetry Gauntlet member Maddie (Mads) Mitchell as she discusses these important issues. TRIGGER WARNING: This class will deal with mature topics and is best for those in a healthy headspace.
