nu wayze - finding our voices: Nanaimo Poetry Workshop with bill bissett
Wordstorm Society of Arts hosts a three-hour workshop with iconic Canadian poet, bill bissett.

bill will briefly discuss a wide variety of ideas on how to write poetry and the seven approaches to creating poems that he personally uses. Each participant will have the opportunity to read and discuss two poems they have recently written. The day will culminate in everyone creating a sound poem together.

Please bring along two of your own poems, at least one black felt pen, a ball point pen and blank white paper to write on.    

In his own unique style of writing words the way they sound, bill describes himself as:
