The Poetry Book – Otago Workshop and Book Launch

Wed 26th Oct 2022
  • Time: 4:00pm - 6:30pm
  • Venue: Logan Park High School Auditorium
  • Member: $25.00
  • Non Members: $35.00

This practical workshop introduces Sheena and Louise’s new book The Poetry Book.
When students write poetry, it enriches their language and vocabulary, encourages creative thinking and develops reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. All students benefit from writing poetry but ‘at risk’ and reluctant writers can experience particular success from the creative but scaffolded nature of poetry.
The workshop will cover:
• the benefits of teaching poetry to support all learners
• an overview of the chapters, including take-away strategies, ideas and activities.
• prize draw – copies of the poetry book
