The Easy Way to

Write 30 Poems in 30 Days

For Fun and Your Favorite Non-Profit!*

A Workshop for Poets and Non-Poets Alike

by Tommy Twilite

 

Saturday Noon-2pm, October 14th, 2017

Great Falls Discovery Center, Turners Falls MA

as part of the

The Great Falls Word Festival in Turners Falls

Using simple prompts, found objects, family photographs, musical compositions, blind luck, and a small amount of consistent effort and imagination, Tommy will demonstrate some of the “tricks of the trade” he used to complete his wildly successful 2016 campaign to write “30 Poems In November” and how he was able to lead the Center For New Americans effort to far surpassing its fundraising goals.  The emphasis of this 90-minute workshop will be on having fun, and on using your creativity and positive energy to fulfill your own dream of writing 30 Poems in 30 Days. Feedback, discussion, and participation from the group is expected and strongly encouraged.  

Tommy Twilite, a.k.a.
