About the event

Our NewGen poetry workshop aims to provide young poets with expert artist mentorship from two incredible poets, Britta Badour and Tyler Pennock.

This will be a two-weekend workshop at The Parkside Centre (YMCA), 140 Durham Street, on June 22nd-23rd and August 10th-11th.

The sessions will run on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The first weekend will centre on creating poetry, either as spoken word or page poetry. The group will be divided into two smaller groups, one working with Britta Badour on spoken word and the other half working with Tyler Pennock on page poetry.

We will provide lunch and group activities before switching the groups. Participants will experience hands-on activities led by the artist mentors on creating their poetry.

In the final session, the artist mentors will return to Sudbury to assist the participants with finalizing their work and preparing to perform for a community audience.
