ROOM 703


The Poets of Well-Being present a collaborative performance, followed by a panel discussion of how their poetry and spoken word workshops have helped people recover from substance abuse and trauma. They will demonstrate how creative writing can engage one’s inner wisdom, humor, and lyricism to empower both individuals and communities in their journeys through recovery. Through discussion, ideas on how to use poetry and spoken word as means for transformation will be explored, and the presenters will share their own experiences and insights as poet/therapists, and as the founder/facilitators of the Poetry of Well-Being workshops. With a focus on personal and professional collaboration to develop creativity and community, this 90-minute workshop invites participants to share the joy of the written and spoken word by engaging in this interactive performance experience.w
