Poetry Workshop

“Breathe in – experience. Breathe out – poetry.”

(Muriel Rukeyser)


This workshop immerses its participants in the – at first glance – shortest of all genres: poetry. You will get to know various forms (haiku, sonnet, sevenaar, ghazal etc.) and try them out, drawing from your own lives.

What we will cover in the workshop:

  • finding your topics and your own poetic voice
  • some theory
  • getting to know diverse forms of poetry – from sonnet to event poem
  • experimenting with language and sounds
  • reading poetry – and enjoying it!


  • process-oriented approach
  • respectful and constructive feedback
  • inputs
  • exercises


You should enjoy writing, experimenting with language and trying out new forms and genres. You should like poems. You do not need to have any previous experience in writing poetry, but of course if you do, you are also very welcome.
