Unrestricted Interest Poetry Workshop 2017
Social life revolves around expression, but it can be a challenge to express the full exuberance of one’s passions in socially appropriate ways. What if there was a mode of expression uniquely suited to the inherent strengths of autistic thought? There is: poetry! New research shows that the autistic brain is hardwired for metaphor, sensory detail, and studied attention to the materiality of language. AuSM is pleased to partner with Unrestricted Interest to give individuals on the spectrum practical tools for creative expression in a fun environment where they feel free to be themselves and collaborate with others.
Celebrate the confluence of Autism Awareness Month and National Poetry Month by working with professional writers to create original poetry using your own particular interests as a jumping off point. Experiment with different forms, patterns, structures, and approaches to help unlock your expressive potential and let people know who you really are.
Class meets on Mondays from 6:30-8 p.m.
April 3, 10, 17, and 24, 2017 (4-week class)
