The Hundred Thousand Billion Poems Workshop

In this workshop, we will try out several experiments for generating new poems. We will make poetry flip books, practice “translating” ourselves onto the page, and explore the process of honing our craft by creating multiple variations of a single piece. We will also work on the fundamentals of making a poem, including tension, imagination, and surprise. Participants will take home as many potential poems as possible, to keep writers’ block at bay for months to come. No prior poetry or writing experience necessary!

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 12 participants.
