Poetry is more than rhyming words on a page. It is a tool of expression. Everyone, has something to say. Words are like rhythm to a musician, color to a painter or clay to a sculptor. We intend to provide tools that will spark your creativity and inspire you to craft and tell your story.

Poetry Instructor: For more than a decade, Randy Harris has been a facilitator with the WAE Center. He has led classes in creative writing, speaking circles, meditation, geography, documentary, peer advocacy groups (ABLE – Abundance, Beauty, Love, Expansiveness) as well as one to one sessions with members. He is passionate and inspired to facilitate members finding their inner voice and creative genius through poetry.
