Poetry Workshop for Children – October 2018

Home and Beyond

Home and Beyond is our first ever poetry camp where students take walks, work with visuals, listen to music, respond to art, create collages as they work with words, read poetry and create their own poems!

At this two day camp, participants will explore different forms of poetry, as they reflect on the theme ‘Home and Beyond’. What is home really? Your favourite chair, guitar, friends, or the quiet comfort of your room? Home is more than the physical space we inhabit. It extends to encompass the city, country, and planet on which we, along with a great multitude of creatures, thrive.  They will work with different poetry forms such as Calligrams, Acrostics, limericks, Japanese whispers accompanied by mix-media collages among others!

These young poets will explore links between themselves and their world or ‘home’ through poetry readings and writing exercises.  They will reflect on their life, their home, the world around them and the creatures in the ‘beyond’ too!

They will stretch their imagination and use their creativity as they express themselves through art and poetry!

Pomegranate’s Home and Beyond poetry camp is a fun, safe space where participants will be inspired to create, express and imagine!!
