Humans are capable of simultaneously holding both the love and the mess — how can we write to honour this duality?

This workshop offers space to explore writing as an act of love and to consider what it is to be human in a profoundly difficult yet terribly beautiful world. Together we will reflect, write, listen and discuss in a mutually respectful and collaborative atmosphere*.

Poetry is a way of reaching towards each other; of closing the spaces between us and this work can be how we imagine a way forward, how we birth new worlds.

Please come prepared with an open mind, something to write with and water or any refreshments you need to be comfortable.

*This workshop is a consent-focused space and participants can engage at whatever level is comfortable for them.


Vancouver Poetry House events take place on the ancestral territories of the Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh First Nations, whose lands were never sold, ceded, or relinquished,—lands that were taken. Vancouver Poetry House supports the resurgence of Indigenous culture and the work of Indigenous poets.
