Poetic Musings Writing Workshop: Rhyming Poems

Poetic Musings Writing Workshop: Rhyming Poems

Get ready for our Poetic Musings Poetry Contest! Learn how to write a poem that rhymes and discover how to move beyond rhyming words like mad/sad or silk/milk. Participants will write a rhyming poem and get writing tips from a published poet! 

This event is no longer scheduled as an in-person event at Sherwood Regional. It is now a virtual workshop.
