Join acclaimed poet Jennifer Battisti in an exploration of everyday life to find inspiration. No creative writing experience is required.

Demystify the creative process in this generative workshop all about the day-to-day. Join local poet Jennifer Battisti on a journey into the lived experience and consider the infinite possibilities of bringing expression into your routines. Creativity does not belong in a specific space or a designated time slot but rather can flow through every aspect of your world.
