Here’s what one participant said about his experience:

“My English teacher said be quiet, sit up straight, and write poetry the proper way.  I failedand had to stand in front of the class to be instructed on the “right way.”  I went to a Poetry Playshop and recovered – there was no right or wrong.  I wrote a poem in my own way and shared it in my own voice.  Bravo!”   Tom Filcich ~  Recovering English Student, Creative Spirit & Poetry Lover
