Kingston Poetry Collective Presents: Poetry As Knowledge Translation Or The Inali Questions

Tuesday, January 16th from 3-5pm at 99 York St

This workshop will focus on editing and writing poetry with the goals of clarity and translating emotions and events across many contexts. We will walk through 4 main questions together as a group, discuss intersectionality in writing as it relates to accessible language and individual experience, participate in a few writing exercises, and spend some time at the end to edit pre-existing work and explore the peer editing process. Please come prepared with writing materials and any work you might want looked at.

The Kingston Community House at 99 York is a not for profit organization providing safe inclusive meeting space for community groups and organizations. For thirty three years our house – your house — has been providing low-cost meeting space for hundreds of groups, allowing like-minded people to come together to learn from one another, to share resources and trade skills. Located in downtown Kingston, this welcoming facility operates 7 days a week, serving the Kingston community. We are operated by a volunteer board.

We believe that everyone has the capacity to take responsibility for themselves given the proper tools and encouragement. An integral part of the neighbourhood, a typical day could include a cooking class, a meditation group, a social justice movie and an autism support group. Tomorrow…an art class, English lessons and a 12 step program.

Please drop in and see the house, talk to our coordinator and see for yourself… a welcoming space for your group or organization!
