Life Management Series for Students: Be Good to Yourself, Whoever You Are: A Poet in Community Workshop with Ronna Bloom

Date: Friday, April 8, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

Often in life and in school, energy moves towards projects and people, but there’s little left for your own restoration. In this workshop, through the use of poems and prompts, you will be nudged into writing and reflecting on what sustains you, what you love and what you need. Take this time for yourself as a flicker of possibility of how you might take time for yourself in general.

No experience necessary. Please have a pen and paper, a notebook or whatever you like to write with on hand.

Ronna Bloom is a teacher and author of six books of poetry. Her poems have been recorded by the CNIB, and translated into Spanish, Bangla, and Chinese. Ronna created the Poet in Residence program at Sinai Health and is currently Poet in Community to the University of Toronto.
