Service Description

Poetry As Storytelling was first conceived in January 2021, when I was invited to conduct a workshop on poetry for children aged 10 to 15. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you combined poetic elements with the art of storytelling? In this workshop, we will be exploring two unique and lesser-known poetic forms that are great fun to write. Age: 15+ What you will learn: - What are the key elements of storytelling? - What is a cherita? - History of the cherita form - Analyzing several examples of cherita and its variations - What is a pantoum? - How can you use form poetry to convey a story? - Writing a four-stanza pantoum - Further reading & resources - Feedback will be provided on poems written during the course If you've taken my Poetry Is Everywhere: Advanced Workshop, watch out for the surprise element! :)
