To the Bloom is a generative writing workshop that uses love as a writing device to view our worlds, and the stories housed within them.
Together we will examine our favorite songs, meals, and memories alongside traditional writing tools.
We will use imagery, metaphors, and personification to map out the quickest way to our hearts, to our bloom. Let’s get together and write about the things we love!
To The Bloom is for poets of all experience levels.
