In February 2022, we spent a delightful interactive evening with the poet, Glenis Redmond. During the workshop, Glenis had us doodling, dreaming and writing. We also spent some time sharing couplets that moved us to wonder, sadness, and joy.
We are pleased to offer you a few short excerpts from the workshop.
