Do you LOVE creative writing? Do you wish that you could expand on your writing skills and receive meaningful feedback? Fairmount can help!

This fall, Fairmount is offering 2 poetry workshops for ages 8-12 and 13-18 via Zoom. This workshop is designed help young writers learn a variety of poetry forms—structure, rhyme and the famous poets who use them. Participants will then write their own poems to share with the class! Last class includes a share out for family and friends (last 30 minutes of each class). Attend class from anywhere and invite family and friends to log on and learn together!
