About the Facilitator

Poetry Prescribed use spoken word poetry as a catalyst for conversation; to inspire thought, change, and creativity. Through poetry we can creatively connect to self, others, and our communities. Their workshops provide a safe space for people to come together and learn about how both spoken word poetry and creative writing can help deal with a wide range of topics. There are many benefits associated with poetry such as the relief of depressive symptoms, improvement of self-esteem and self- understanding, the promotion of empathy and understanding of others, and encouragement to express feelings to name just a few. Poetry Prescribed can offer a voice to those who have previously found it difficult to articulate and/or express what they feel, and welcome everybody regardless of writing experience or ability.
