It can be accessible, playful, and extremely rewarding. Why? Because Poetry is the language of the soul. It can cut through small talk and get straight to the heart of human experience. Your experience. Our experience. And getting in touch with your poetic voice and sharing it with others can be incredibly fun and stimulating.
